"The best book I read in 2009, every citizen ought to read it."—Alan Jessen, Iowa
“Anderson continues his penetrating analysis of the American constitutional system, of the “worms” that have infected it, and of a restored constitutional structure that will enable it to fill the noble mission the Founding Fathers intended for it.”—Morton A. Kaplan, Professor of Political Science Emeritus, and Distinguished Service Professor, the University of Chicago
“Gordon Anderson’s “state of the union” book rises above partisan politics to identify fundamental steps that all Americans need to take in perilous times to bolster the nation’s commitment to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. His outlook well informed by sound historical understanding, Anderson advances bold public policy strategies, grounded in a political philosophy that emphasizes personal responsibility, the common good, and realistic hope for the American future. Cogent, constructive, controversial—this significant book should be widely read, its wisdom thoughtfully discussed and put into practice.”—John K. Roth, Edward J. Sexton Professor Emeritus of Philosophy, Claremont McKenna College
