Summary
"In this volume, Lawrence W. Reed identifies the root of many of America's evils today: a failure to recognize that government rests on the use of force. This fundamental feature of government may help protect our individual freedoms, but it can diminish these freedoms when used in pursuit of a political faction's idea of a good cause"--Book jacket
