Abstract:

"Rand Paul, U.S. senator for Kentucky and America's most prominent libertarian, makes a case against socialist ideology, showing the impact of its deadly legacy and the threat of its new rise in America"--

Paul outlines the history of socialism, from Stalin's gulags to the current famine in Venezuela. He tackles common misconceptions about the 'utopia' of socialist Europe. Paul believes socialism's return is only possible because it is now the ideology du jour on American college campuses and among many leftists. In doing so he provides a call to action against the forces menacing American liberty. -- adapted from jacket
