The Path To Tyrannyby Michael E. Newton
Western civilization is risking the return of tyranny by increasing the size and scope of government. Throughout history, free societies descended into tyranny when their populations realized they can use the power of government to give themselves benefits at the expense of others. The Path To Tyranny examines how and why each of these free societies descended into tyranny and evaluates the current prospects for the United States.

If you're looking for a shrill, hysterical book meant to whip up frenzied emotions, you'll need to keep looking. This is a book that condenses volumes of information (check the bibliography!) into very few pages, really, and yet it's a book that reads easily enough that it's difficult to put down. It is not an attempt to rewrite history to force the reader to "inescapable conclusions", though the simple facts paint a stark picture. Overall, a splendid book, and well-written.
I am a fiction reader and have not read a non-fiction book in years. A friend recommended this book to me and I found it very enjoyable in addition to being informative, educational, and very relevant to today. I highly recommend.
Great book! This well researched and sourced book brings history to life and makes a compelling argument that history repeats itself and we need to learn its lessons. Without being overbearing you are led to conclusions appropriate for today. It is impossible to read this book and not learn new facts and concepts. The book is affordable and should be in the library of everybody interested in history and/or politics.
