Amazon went live today with Last Rights: The Death of American Liberty. The Kindle and paperback versions are available and the hardback should be stocked very soon. You can read the first chapter free online at the Amazon link. Here’s some info on the book:
Americans today have “freedom” to be fleeced, harassed, surveilled, censored, vilified, beaten, jailed, and maybe shot by federal agents. From hapless homeowners hit by SWAT raids to pandemic lockdowns pointlessly paralyzing lives, government agencies have become far more intrusive and abusive. There is no escape from tinhorn dictators seizing guns, sabotaging schooling, or wrecking housing markets. At a time when many Americans fear our nation is spiraling towards dictatorship or civil war, notorious investigative journalist James Bovard is back with another masterful blend of political outrages and comic relief.
From the FBI fabricating crimes and targeting Catholics and perturbed parents, to the TSA daily molesting legions of women, to the IRS plundering and blundering, Uncle Sam is on the rampage. The Constitution failed to leash politicians and the Bill of Rights failed to protect citizens. But awakening people to the political devastation is the first step to ending tyrannical trends. Last Rights explains how America went awry and how we can still rescue individual liberty.
James Bovard is the author of 11 books, including the 1994 bestseller, Lost Rights: The Destruction of American Liberty. He is a member of the USA Today Board of Contributors, a frequent contributor to the New York Post, and has written for the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, Playboy, and many other publications. The Wall Street Journal called Bovard “the roving inspector general of the modern state,” New York Times labeled him an “anti-czar Czar,” and Washington Post columnist George Will called him a “one-man truth squad.” His writings have been publicly denounced by the chief of the FBI, Secretary of Agriculture, Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, Secretary of Labor, Postmaster General, and the chiefs of the TSA, DEA, and FEMA. In 2015, the Justice Department sought to suppress his articles in USA Today. He is a senior fellow with the Libertarian Institute and a 2023 fellow with the Brownstone Institute. His books have been translated into Spanish, Arabic, Japanese, and Korean.
