7 books that will leave you utterly demoralized but undoubtedly smarter about the lawlessness of the U.S. legal system


More excellent reading suggestions from leading libertarian Charles Murray.

As we noted on his reading suggestions on the Constitution, libertarian political scientist Charles Murray generously sprinkles a number of recommended books throughout his new "By the People: Rebuilding Liberty Without Permission" (more on the book in our interview below):

One such subject that is the focus of "By the People" is the extent to which America's legal system has become warped to the point of lawlessness itself.

Below are seven reading suggestions from Murray on the topic:

1) The American Illness: Essays on the Rule of Law by F.H. Buckley

2) The Death of Common Sense: How Law Is Suffocating America by Philip Howard

3) Life Without Lawyers: Restoring Responsibility in America by Philip Howard

4) The Rule of Nobody: Saving America from Dead Laws and Broken Government by Philip Howard

5) The Collapse of the Common Good: How America's Lawsuit Culture Undermines Our Freedom by Philip Howard

6) The Litigation Explosion: What Happened When America Unleashed the Lawsuit by Walter Olson

7) The Rule of Lawyers: How the New Litigation Elite Threatens America's Rule of Law


Note: The link to the book in this post will give you an option to elect to donate a percentage of the proceeds from the sale to a charity of your choice. Mercury One, the charity founded by TheBlaze’s Glenn Beck, is one of the options. Donations to Mercury One go towards efforts such as disaster relief, support for education, support for Israel and support for veterans and our military.
