Everyone knows from childhood civics, or at least from the moment they try to get a driver's license, that this is a nation of states. So what?Federalism is a core component of the infrastructure of freedom. It checks the centralization of the national government and protects a sphere of state autonomy and local self-government, the result of which is a great open space for the flourishing of civil society.In this intriguing monograph, former Deputy Secretary of Education Eugene Hickok makes the case for federalism, tells of its early practice, and explains how modern bureaucratic government, the rights revolution, and judicial supremacy have come to take its place, all to the detriment of liberty and civic virtue.
