Liberals believe that "states' rights" is merely a smokescreen for racist repression. What we have forgotten is that the Constitution itself is a compromise between state and federal governments--a compromise the Federal government no longer respects. Historically, the doctrine of states' rights has been a powerful engine of prosperity and a protector of American freedoms. Conservatives need to reclaim states' rights as an honorable tradition, and a necessary component of constitutional government.

I haven't really ever considered the idea of States' Rights before. Being a young 20-something I have grown up in a time that all the really important decisions were coming from the federal government.

This book offered a good history on States' rights versus federal government rights from the formation of the Union to present. It also offers positions on what powers would be best returned to the states to administer and how to push for those changes.

I don't know that I agreed with all the powers that states should have, but this book did lead me to a perspective that the federal government does have more powers then it can properly manage/control.

I highly recommend this book.
