4.0 out of 5 stars Is America A Republic?, August 16, 2002
This review is from: Restoration of the Republic: The Jeffersonian Ideal in 21st-Century America (Hardcover)
In this book Gary Hart looks at the problems facing America, asking if the corruption in our government may mean we no longer are a true Republic, and offers solutions. Originally a book that was to focus on placing greater control in the hands of 'ward republics' or divisions created below the county level, it mentions some issues concerning the militia and defending America. With September 11th, Hart went back to re-write some portions of the book to increase the emphasis on defending America. Overall, his research on Jefferson (who originally proposed these ward republics) and the issues of Jeffersonianism throughout American history would be enough to buy the book. His proposals for the 21st Century are just extra, but are not fleshed out enough to warrent a five.
