New book by Paul delegateSubmitted by Bryan96 on Tue, 10/29/2013 - 17:33
Hi, DP'ers. I have new book that's just been released called Politics on a Human Scale: The American Tradition of Decentralism. I'm a political science professor and an admirer of Ron Paul since he was first elected in 1976. I was a delegate from Iowa at the national convention in Tampa a year ago and I cast one of the 190 votes he received during the roll call.
My book is an academic book, but it's accessible to a wider audience. I'd like for it to break out of the confines of the "academic ghetto." PHS is a book about political decentralization in the United States, including agrarianism, states’ rights, the abandonment of the decentralist impulse by the national leadership of the Democratic and Republican parties, and the dissident tradition on the contemporary political scene. Covering the subject with breadth and depth—from the founding of the republic to the present—the book will be of value to those interested in political science, history, and American culture.
