Publisher's Summary

From New York Times best-selling author and radio host Mark R. Levin comes a searing plea for a return to America's most sacred values.
In Rediscovering Americanism, Mark R. Levin revisits the founders' warnings about the perils of overreach by the federal government and concludes that the men who created our country would be outraged and disappointed to see where we've ended up.
Levin returns to the impassioned question he's explored in each of his best-selling books: How do we save our exceptional country? Because our values are in such a precarious state, he argues that a restoration to the essential truths on which our country was founded has never been more urgent. Understanding these principles, in Levin's words, can "serve as the antidote to tyrannical regimes and governments". Rediscovering Americanism is not an exercise in nostalgia but an appeal to his fellow citizens to reverse course.
This essential book brings Levin's celebrated, sophisticated analysis to the troubling question of America's future and reminds us what we must restore for the sake of our children and our children's children.

More scholarly than I expected

I've never listened to Mark Levin's radio program or read any of his books. I was under the impression he that he is simply a conservative flame thrower. This book proves my impression wrong, dead wrong.

Rediscovering Americanism is mostly a scholarly history of natural law political/economic philosophy and of alternate philosophies. Levin makes the case that US founding principles are better than the alternates. He specifically makes the case that the progressive movement began with President Theodore Roosevelt and reaching its early height with President Woodrow Wilson is toxic to those founding principles and is leading our democratic republic in the wrong direction, toward destruction. The best example of damage done is with the administrative state where Congress has give up most of its constitutional authority to the executive branch (the federal bureaucracy normally passes 8 times as many regulations/laws each year as does Congress). (For details on this I recommend Is Administrative Law Unlawful? by Professor Phillip Hamberger. The book is unfortunately not available in audio format, but is available in ebook format.)

Despite my early concerns about Mark Levin and Rediscovering Americanism it is a wonderful book that is spot on with its analysis and prescriptions. The book would be an excellent textbook for a required civics course in every high school in the US.

I've been listening to lots of fiction. This is the first of 5 non-fiction books I am requiring myself to listen to consecutively.
