The Next American Civil War
The Populist Revolt Against the Liberal Elite
By (author) Lee Harris
Next American Civil War book by Lee Harris
Many of us were surprised by the escalating incidents that began right after Obama's election - tea parties, guns toted at town hall meetings, rumors of socialism and death panels. But Lee Harris knew this was coming. Harris has long been reflecting on freedom and what it really means. In this new book, he explains that the outrage we're witnessing is born of the age-old fear - as old as the nation itself - that someone will away take our freedom. It is this fear that sparked the current populist revolt, led by people like Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin who have sounded the alarm, claiming that Obama's push for reform is simply the intellectual elite's most recent power-grab. Here, Harris shows that in reality, this ongoing debate is good and necessary. Throughout our history, Americans have challenged the definition of liberty and this has allowed us to progress as a society. Harris argues that we must listen carefully to this new populist uprising and take it seriously if we are to defend our founding principles and achieve true freedom for all.

Whether or not by choice, the West finds itself in a low-grade yet bitter war with Islamic fanaticism. It is a war, argues the author, that the West is singularly ill-equipped to fight and a foe that is resistant to our normal methods of conflict resolution - negotiation, economic sanctions, and conventional armed confrontation.
