From five-time #1 New York Times bestselling author, radio host, and "one of the conservative moment's most influential voices" ( The Washington Times ) Mark R. Levin comes a searing plea for a return to America's most sacred values.

In Rediscovering Americanism, Mark R. Levin revisits the founders' warnings about the perils of overreach by the federal government and concludes that the men who created our country would be outraged and disappointed to see where we've ended up.

Levin returns to the impassioned question he's explored in each of his bestselling books: How do we save our exceptional country? Because our values are in such a precarious state, he argues that a restoration to the essential truths on which our country was founded has never been more urgent. Understanding these principles, in Levin's words, can "serve as the antidote to tyrannical regimes and governments." Rediscovering Americanism is not an exercise in nostalgia, but an appeal to his fellow citizens to reverse course.

This essential book brings Levin's celebrated, sophisticated analysis to the troubling question of America's future, and reminds us what we must restore for the sake of our children and our children's children.

Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "Radio host Levin (Plunder and Deceit) asks a provocative question-what would the Founding Fathers "think about today's America?"-in this dense, thoughtful book. If the book "can open a few eyes it will have served its purpose," Levin writes, and to that end he quotes generously from "philosophers and thinkers," including Cicero, Alexis de Tocqueville, and Thomas Jefferson. Even readers unfamiliar with the author's show or with his previous books (which he refers to frequently) will quickly realize that Levin's answer to the question he poses is a decidedly conservative one-that the Founders would be outraged by the extent of the federal government's interference in everyday life. Right- and left-wing readers may disagree on the wisdom of his policy prescriptions, but they are likely to agree that the presentation is erudite and sometimes challenging. Discussing market capitalism, for instance, Levin writes that it has been addressed primarily "in the context of Marx's material historicism" and continues by writing that in his view "private property is the material manifestation of the individual's labor." He also throws out some heady discussion points: "What do we mean by human and individual freedom?" This is an educational, if often long-winded, policy primer. (June) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
