Abstract:

This book is about American politics and law; it is also about the roots of the Contract with America. A logical place to find the intent of the Founders is in Locke, which Stephens highlights. The most attractive feature of George Stephens's new book is his effort to root present-day controversies about property rights, freedom and the role of government in the great literature of liberty that is America's political heritage. The struggle to liberate our markets and our minds is an old — even an ancient — one. Stephens demonstrates that, to prevail in this critical struggle, we must replant the seeds of liberty that John Locke and others found centuries ago, and nurture their growth into towering, protective trees of constitutional order.
