An explosive expose of the man who devoted his career to shackling
democracy - and succeeded. Libertarian billionaires are using their
wealth and power to drastically curtail the US democratic process,
disempowering ordinary citizens whilst entrenching the influence of
corporations as never before. In Democracy in Chains, award-winning
historian Nancy MacLean reveals how the ideas of Nobel Prize-winning
political economist James McGill Buchanan have been used to undermine
the power of voters in a country whose Constitution is founded on the
principle 'We the people'.
Now, with Mike Pence as Vice President, this chilling movement has a loyalist in the White House, as well as supporters in the House, the Senate, a majority of state governments, and the courts. Democracy in Chains is a timely, important book, which should be read by anybody interested in the future of democracy.
