Summary
  • "Those who declare the era of big government over, says Clint Bolick, are dead wrong. In Leviathan, Bolick shows that, although the national government has downsized somewhat since the Reagan era, local government has grown exponentially. This ever-expanding beast, he explains, saps our nations's productive vitality and threatens us with "grassroots tyranny.""
  • "Drawing from his experience as an attorney with the Institute of Justice, Bolick uses illuminating cases from the litigation trenches to show how powerful local government has infringed on freedom of speech, freedom of commerce and enterprise, private property rights, and even the simple right to be left alone. He explains how locally controlled government school systems reflect the values of powerful interest groups and why - despite spending millions of taxpayers' dollars - they are unable to provide the basics of education." "Bolick ultimately reveals that, although the rules are often rigged in favor of local governments and against ordinary citizens, we can take action to rein in these out-of-control bureaucracies."--Jacket
