Product Description

Review

"The necessary book of the Obama era." -- Jeffrey Lord, The American Spectator

"Levin has delivered a stalwart conservative manifesto written by a conservative who doesn't want to re-brand and repackage conservatism into liberalism. He draws on founding principles, not polls, to lay out the agenda for the Right -- and to illuminate the fatal flaws of statism." -- Michelle Malkin

"This is quite simply the most important book of our times." -- Scott Miller, The Conservative Post

"This has the answer for everything you've asked yourself about yourself, and why you believe what you believe." -- Rush Limbaugh

"Liberty and Tyranny is Mark Levin: a man who loves his family and country and believes ideas have consequences -- and therefore will fight passionately for what he believes and knows to be true." -- Kathryn Jean Lopez, National Review

"While it may present itself as a "conservative manifesto" (and it is that, too) it is also a compelling primer on the most basic principles of the American political order." -- Gary L. McDowell, American Thinker

"Mark Levin's Liberty and Tyranny: A Conservative Manifesto couldn't be more relevant or important. It is a masterful restatement of conservative principles that is succinct...and yet comprehensive. It is thoughtful and deep but highly readable. It is timely yet timeless." -- David Limbaugh, TownHall.com

"This is a superbly useful book. It is the perfect companion for the college freshman to fortify the student against what he or she is about to hear. It is an ideal detoxicant for the graduating senior. Most vitally, it should be read by those who do not consider themselves conservatives, because it carefully lays out the central historic, philosophic and constitutional relationship between conservative principles and our individual freedom." -- Tony Blankley, The Washington Times

"If you want to rediscover true conservatism, read Mark Levin's Liberty and Tyranny. If you want to help preserve liberty, buy copies for your kids." -- Terry Jeffrey, CNS News

"It is a rarity that an important book arrives at its perfect moment. Such is the case with Liberty and Tyranny: A Conservative Manifesto...Against this tidal wave, Mark Levin offers not so much a defense as a plan of attack, a clarion call to roll back the seas of Change." -- Andrew C McCarthy, The New Criterion

I've never listened to Mark Levin before. I am not a fan of his radio show either. Too busy with other stuff. Though I have to admit I liked his recent book "Liberty And Tyranny". It gave me enough knowledge and information to figure out the correct path in each debate, especially on health care and immigration issues. I think this book is a great one in terms of reminding people of how powerful they can be in rolling back the Statists' agenda. The book is written in an eloquent way that reminds the reader of manifests written in late 19th century. It's easy to read and very well researched. The index and endnotes are highly credible and quotes are to the point. The only minor short coming of the book is that it does not provide solutions for some of the issues it is debating. Maybe it was not intended by the author. I have no idea since I dont listen to his show. But that'd be great if Mr. Levin told us how to fix these. Yes, the last chapter "the manifesto" describes them but they are very vague and broad. A free, prosperous and strong USA makes the rest of the world free, prosperous and strong. And it's sad to see Statists/leftists are destroying the only hope of the mankind in order to create their hellish utopia on this planet. This book, even though depressing and gloomy, taught me a lot more than I already knew and for that I am grateful. All in all, this is a must read for all conservatives especially in the western world. Canadian or British conservatives can learn a lot from reading this book. We are in it to win it. The future of the free world depends on how we act in the next coming years.

12 of 16 people found the following review helpful By David J. Van Duuren on June 6 2009
Format: Hardcover
This book is a must read for any Conservative in any country. Mark lays out the problems currently facing America and some that are coming down the road which are already prominent in other free countries.
One of things I like about Mark is that, unlike most other Conservative media figures, he always expresses himself from a true Conservative standpoint. He doesn't oppose the Republican party, but he certainly doesn't praise non-conservative actions by them such as the Medicare bill by Bush.
You can tell when reading the book that Mark is not a professional writer. Don't expect a work of literary genius. That said, I still rated it a 5 because the message is what is important, and this book sums it up better then any other book I have read.

This is a man who clearly understands context, and the relevancy of the Constitution of the USA. If everyone had the foresight that Mr Levin has, the USA would not be in the desperate condition it is now in.

Format: Hardcover
For all of our Democrat-installed appeals court justices who don't seem to understand the limitations of their power stated in the U.S. Constitution, this is the book for you. It is also for the millions of Americans who are too young to remember the 1930s or didn't study it. We are going through a process of rapid deconstruction and destruction of the U.S. Constitution, and very few seem to see this rapidly passing by as the principles upon which our successful nation were founded are stomped flat as the Constitution is disregarded by anyone with a square yard of power around their fiefdoms.

If you don't understand the simple 10 Amendments to the Constitution--read this book. Read why you don't have to fear anything from your neighbor who may shout profanities in his backyard, or harbor a few firearms to protect his homestead from the free flow of undocumented aliens flowing across his property night and day.

Mark Levin is an accomplished attorney who can speak plainly, and does. This is a rarity in itself in my experience. Moreover, he lays out the quite simple and effective design of our Nation founded upon the principle of individual liberty, a totally new concept in the 1700s, which produced a great nation that beat back the foes of liberty worldwide in a short 4 years. Yet today, more and more "native Americans" have no understanding of why millions left their families and workplace to engage in this worldwide crusade, at peril of horrible death or injury, without question, in 1941-1945.

This is THE book to fill out your understanding of our Constitution. It will help you understand why centrally controlled government is inferior to individual liberty for a nation fundamentally grounded in its BORDERS, LANGUAGE, and CULTURE (nod to Dr. Savage here). You can start to understand what it means to be and AMERICAN here. If you have any doubts about a world government, read this book!

William F. Buckley, Jr.: “[T]here is a better chance of a repository of the kind of wisdom I choose to be governed by among average people than among Ph.D’s at Harvard” (p. 45.) Enlightened conservatives would not take this remark as ‘tongue-in-cheek.’ The soft tyranny the US citizen is oppressed by comes from the halls of academia, where Marxism reigns and where novel ideas are hatched. Thankfully, through radio hosts like Mark Levin, the enlightened are a growing mass, maybe large enough to vote President Obama out, and brave enough to vote a true conservative in. Republicans who ‘prefer to tinker ineffectually and timidly on the edges’ instead of ‘returning to first principles’ may win the next election. But these kind of Republicans are not conservatives, but what Levin calls ‘Neo-Statists.’ To replace Statism with Neo-Statism would be a ‘hollow victory indeed’ (p. 194.) Since this is a ‘bloodless struggle,’ all conservatives should enlist ‘with the courage of their convictions’ (p. 199.)

By conservatism Levin means liberty; by Statism, or tyranny, he means non-conservatism (p.1.) Since the word ‘liberal’ really means the opposite of authoritarian, it is more accurate to label the Modern Liberal as a Statist (p. 4.) Some will take offence with the labels that Levin has chosen to identify political parties by. But his choices more accurately represent the parties or factions than the beclouded labels currently in use. Given the usual confusing world of political philosophy, Levin’s work is refreshing and welcome. Besides marking out political philosophies by labels that suit, he adroitly demystifies, or demythologizes (whichever you choose) the words and terms that politicians use to mislead voters by.
