5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Allan from San Francisco on January 23, 2005
Format: Paperback
Here is an easy to read and understand book by a British author who bemoans the fact (although he didn't say so in exactly these words) that most Europeans, including the British, still have a serf mentality. Americans, however, believe that the government is their servant, not their master, which is the book's central theme and what the author admires most about America. (He also recommends a few ways that the British can make their government freer and more like ours.) "What it all adds up to," he says on page 52, "is an American culture of rights that allows the people to stand up to authority, whether through the Bill of Rights, the Freedom of Information Act or guaranteed free speech." He also admires how easily Americans can initiate ballot initiatives. All Americans know about the events of 1776 and 1789, but (page 156) "...Britain has no start date and no founding purpose."

Give me liberty over "security" any day. Now we finally have a British author who thinks the same way, and it's about time.

Format: Paperback
Wonderful book - and really easy to read. It simple terms it describes all that is good about the American and English governments can be combined. Very clever and often times, very funny. Perfect for poli-sci buffs that have a bit of an anglophile streak.
