Published: Viking - June 13th, 2017

This book digs below the surface of our current partisan divide and illuminates the path of Nobel Prize-winning economist, James McGIll Buchanan and his quest to "save capitalism from democracy." The author leads us on a six decades long journey, following this nascent movement from clandestine meetings to gatherings at influential universities, ultimately merging paths with billionaire Charles Koch. By shining a bright light on this movement, MacLean makes a very clear and compelling case that protections provided by the Constitution are in very real danger of being irrevocably lost. ~ Reviewed by Patricia Vunk
