"What a government must do," Charles Murray says, "is leave people alone." No one who reads this clear, energetic work will come away with previous perceptions unshaken. Using fascinating case studies and drawing upon advances in psychology and sociology, Murray develops a strong argument for a return to Jeffersonian ideals of community, local government and individualism.

Charles Murray is the W.H. Brady Scholar in Culture and Freedom at AEI.
