Overview

America is at a crucial point in its history. As more and more of its citizens no longer believe in its exceptionalism, the once proud nation is not only losing its place in the world, but it is also losing its very soul. The root cause of this is a lack of knowledge. Knowledge of the incredible history and the principles that made America one of the greatest nations the world has ever seen. It is the objective of Liberty Inherited to set the record straight. It starts by recognizing that the foundation of this exceptionalism goes further back than 1776. As the book beautifully details, it evolved over 12 centuries. In a very easy and understandable way, Liberty Inherited will take you back to the Old World and planting of the seed that will mature in the New World to become the Liberty Tree. From this incredible tale of the now forgotten-or untold- origins of America you will rediscover the nation's greatness and the principles that made it exceptional. In the end, this book will leave you asking, "Why was I never taught this?"

"John Hancock has traced the origins of American liberty back to their earliest roots, in the political struggles of early modern England. He understands that our two countries are joint inheritors of a great tradition: the tradition of limited government, of parliamentary supremacy, of personal freedom and of the common law. This book is a refreshing antidote to the prevailing historical schools on both sides of the Atlantic". - Daniel Hannan (MEP, Columnist, Author)

"John Hancock has written a book that should be required reading for any student of the Founding Fathers, the Declaration of Independence or the Constitution. He describes in a very easy to understand way, how the Founding Fathers arrived at the thought process that resulted in the founding of this great country. So often we focus on what they did, without thinking how they came to do it." - Stefan Bartelski (Political Commentator, Radio Talk Show Host)

"In Liberty Inherited John Hancock reconnects us with our political heritage and the principles that made this nation great. This book is required reading for anyone concerned that America is losing its exceptionalism."-Former Congressman Steve Stockman (R-TX)
