Tom Woods, who’s not only a brilliant historian, but a best-selling author on the economic crisis, has a great review of the new booklet by John McManus, Restoring the Rights of the States and the People.

Here’s a prime excerpt:

From the period of the early republic until the misnamed Civil War, the states repeatedly defied the federal government on issues ranging from war, conscription, and trade, to free speech and fugitive-slave laws. Students are not generally taught this history in school. They learn instead that the only reasons anyone might not want to repose all decision-making power in the hands of our wise overlords in the federal government is an incorrigible desire to oppress minority groups in one way or another. (Good thing most college students don’t read what their professors assign them, or we’d be in real trouble.) Although not his primary purpose, McManus deftly lays out the case in Restoring the Rights that those Americans who favor these resolutions — and, we hope, the follow-up actions by the states involved — are demonstrably in the right from a constitutional and historical (not to mention moral and political) point of view.

It’s certainly worth a few minutes of your time. Click here for the full review
