  • Twilight of the Republicby Justin B. Litke

    The University Press of Kentucky 2013; US$ 50.00

    The uniqueness of America has been alternately celebrated and panned, emphasized and denied, for most of the country's history -- both by its own people and by visitors and observers from around the world. The idea of "American exceptionalism" tends to provoke strong feelings, but few are aware of the term's origins or understand its true meaning.... more...

  • Liberty and Equalityby Tibor R. Machan

    Hoover Institution Press 2002; US$ 14.99
