Liberty and Tyranny is Mark R. Levin's clarion call to conservative America, a new manifesto for the conservative movement for the 21st century.
In the face of the modern liberal assault on Constitution-based values, an attack that has steadily snowballed since President Roosevelt's New Deal of the 1930s and resulted in a federal government that is a massive, unaccountable conglomerate, the time for re-enforcing the intellectual and practical case for conservatism is now. Conservative beliefs in individual freedoms do, in the end, stand for liberty for all Americans, while liberal dictates lead to the breakdown of civilized society - in short, tyranny.
Looking back to look to the future, Levin writes, "Conservatism is the antidote to tyranny precisely because its principles are our founding principles." And in a series of powerful essays, Levin lays out how conservatives can counter the liberal corrosion that has filtered into every timely issue affecting our daily lives, from the economy to health care, global warming, immigration, and more -- and illustrates how change, as seen through the conservative lens, is always prudent, and always an enhancement to individual freedom.
As provocative, well-reasoned, robust, and informed as his on-air commentary, Levin's narrative will galvanize listeners to begin a new era in conservative thinking and action.

I listened from start to finish in a weekend. It was an I opening book that changed the way I view American politics.
Gets down to the principals of real conservatism and pitfalls of statism.
Mark eloquently shows the snake-like mentality in the minds of leftists, while illustrating the many failings of their policies and usurpations.
The conservative manifesto is a fantastic guideline for activists to use in their fight against the totalitarian mindset of modern day "liberals".
At the end of the book Mr. Levin quotes President Reagan, "Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction." This thoughtful, well written book shows how this has come about in the United States. The New York Times must cringe to acknowledge it is on its best seller list. Read it and weep.
Liberty & Tyranny is a fantastic book. Dr. Levin's predictive powers are a bit uncanny given that this book was researched and written before the election of President Barack Obama and discusses many of the changes that are already in the process of being championed by the new administration.
Regardless of your political persuasion, this book offers some fascinating insights into both the history of American political thought and into what the future may hold for all of us if we continue on our present course.
This book touches on many themes - history, politics, economics and social policy among them - and clarifies basic tenants of conservatism in the context of the relationship between the U.S. Constitution, the individual and the body politic.
If you are like me, once you read this book you will want to share it with others.
I thought that this would be a ranting book similar to what you hear when you here Levin on his talk show. I was very surprised and impressed, however, at not only his analysis, but his in depth research and documentation. For conservatives, this is a must read. For "liberals" (or in Levin's words "Statists") this is not a book that can be discounted as being a conservative rant. I can see why it has been number 1 on the non-fiction best seller's list for so long. Great book! Highly recommended! If I were a liberal or a statist, I would not want to read it for fear it would change my philosophy.
