Last Rights: The Death of American Liberty (January update)

Hearty thanks to everyone who has purchased or reviewed Last Rights: The Death of American Liberty.  The book delivers hard facts and comic relief for these dire times.  Here’s a thumbnail on the book, reviews, and links to some excerpts & spinoffs:

Americans today have “freedom” to be fleeced, harassed, surveilled, injected, 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 humor.  

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, and is a Libertarian Institute fellow. 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. His books have been translated into Spanish, Arabic, Japanese, and Korean.


“James Bovard’s new book, Last Rights: The Death of American Liberty, is a must read.” Legendary Reagan OMB chief David Stockman

“Jim Bovard’s fine and true book, Last Rights, manages to be dire, terrifying and funny in equal parts. It makes a great Christmas gift for your awakened reader.”   Author Ann Bauer

“Jim Bovard is rightly a hero among libertarians for his outstanding journalistic work. He gets right down into the details of topic after topic and anecdote after anecdote and it is all in there packed in there.  Let’s think about supporting old Jim Bovard and go pick up your copy of Last Rights.”  Author Tom Woods, Hayek Lifetime Achievement Award recipient

“Last Rights is an immensely valuable resource… an astonishing, sobering compendium of abuses of power by a man who has the energy and persistence to document everything, with good, reliable references and no excesses of rhetoric…. The book is worth owning as a gesture of support to a unique author. This is truly the ideal book to loan to skeptical friends.”   Author Charles Platt, former senior writer for Wired magazine

“James Bovard’s new book, ‘Last Rights’, is a towering explication of how wicked and rights-crushing the federal police state has become.” Author Gardner Goldsmith, host of Liberty Conspiracy Radio Show

“An excellent read, Last Rights documents the daily costs the US government imposes on the  citizens it claims to protect and represent.  You will learn more on one page of Last Rights than you will in a whole year at the University.”   Author Keith Knight, host of Don’t Tread on Anyone Podcast

“Buy this book, dammit! … I’m glad to see Bovard on the warpath again…  The more you read, the more your blood pressure will rise. He is doing what our vaunted legacy media refuses to do: tell the truth, kick butt, and take names.” Mises Institute economist and editor Bill Anderson

“If you want to learn about the many ways the federal government violates your rights, wastes your money, and abuses its powers, you should read James Bovard’s Last Rights: The Death of American Liberty. It is only 306 pages long (not counting endnotes), but it contains more information than some encyclopedias. It is well-written and an easy read.”      Washington lawyer and former Education Department official Hans Bader
