Quick Review

Philosophy professor Donald Livingston teams up with writers from a diverse set of backgrounds in this group of essays that explores the most forbidden question in modern American politics – is America too big? The essays included in this book explore this question from a variety of vantage points, from the lessons of the ancients to the vision of America’s founders to what we can learn from the breakup of the Soviet Union. Along the way a common thread emerges – that the United States may be too big to govern. Or, as Kirkpatrick Sale observes, “to the size of states, there is a limit.”
