First published in 1955 and out of print since 1989, this book by the late historian Ekirch (University at Albany) features a new foreword by Robert Higgs and argues that the classic liberalism of limited government and individual freedom was in gradual and cumulative decline since the time of the American Revolution and that the major trend in American history has been an ever-greater concentration of political, economic, and social control through the centralization of power in the federal government. He tracks this decline from the Revolution through the rise of the U.S. national security state of the 1950s. Distributed in the US by Independent Publishers Group.
