Hailed by Rush Limbaugh as “the most compelling defense of freedom for our time,” and “the necessary book of the Obama era” by The American Spectator, Mark R. Levin’s Liberty and Tyranny made the most persuasive case for conservatism and against statism in a generation. In this most crucial time, this leading conservative thinker explores the psychology, motivations, and history of the utopian movement, its architects, and its modern-day disciples—and how the individual and American society are being devoured by it.

Levin asks, what is this utopian force that both allures a free people and destroys them? Levin digs deep into the past and draws astoundingly relevant parallels to contemporary America from

Plato’s Republic

Thomas More’s Utopia

Thomas Hobbes’s Leviathan

Karl Marx’s Communist Manifesto

. . . as well as from the critical works of John Locke, Charles Montesquieu, Alexis de Tocqueville, and other philosophical pioneers who brilliantly diagnosed the nature of man and government. As Levin meticulously pursues his subject, the reader joins him in an enlightening and compelling journey. And in the end, Levin’s message is clear: the American republic is in great peril. The people must now choose between utopianism or liberty.

President Ronald Reagan warned, “freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.” Levin agrees, and with Ameritopia, delivers another modern political classic, an indispensable guide for America in our time and in the future.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie Seamons | 2/17/2014

    " It took me a while to read as I had to reread several sections. I loved it as I learned about where the founding fathers gathered their ideologes from. I learned too there needs to be a balance of ideas or we can lose the freedoms we have. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ron Kolb | 2/16/2014

    " An excellent, thoughtful treatise on how America has strayed from the founding. Highly recommended!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Steve Schlutow | 2/16/2014

    " This was a great book. I haven't read/discussed these books analyzed in Ameritopia, since my college days in philosophy classes. It was good to see another conservative view on these utopia stories (I was always in the minority w/ opinion or analysis), instead the normal philosophy professor liberal viewpoint. (I never did well in those classes until I learned to keep my mouth shut.). Again, Great Book... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marilyn Fowler | 2/15/2014

    " A bit text-bookie, but filled with gross examples of the over-extension of our federal government. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alan | 2/4/2014

    " Mark Levin is a brilliant conservative thinker. This book isn't a huge bashing of Obama but rather a thorough study of the influences of the liberal and conservative minds. He lays out what historical documents are the foundation for the utopianthought process behind the liberal worldview and constrasts them with the historical documents that influenced the Founding Fathers in their framing of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. You put down this book with a greater understanding of what America is about and you begin to appreciate the true values that this country was originally founded on and not this Ameritopia (mixture of "utopia" and "America") that the liberals would have you believe we can't live without. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Taylor | 1/30/2014

    " Somewhat bombastic and overly reliant on quotations, but pretty decent for a full-time talk radio host. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Opa | 1/21/2014

    " Mark Levin is truly a great intellect. Enjoyed this very much. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chad | 1/19/2014

    " I'm currently reading this book. Though the message is great, Mark Levin is a hard read. He is very intelligent, and has a vocabulary that makes your head spin. I will eventually get through this book. Grab a thesaurus while you're at the bookstore for this one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dan | 1/3/2014

    " Difficult book to read. But worth the struggle. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joshua Nuckols | 12/16/2013

    " Great book, for it outlines and compares the thought of the Utopias with the thinkers that influenced the Founders. He then shows how radically far from the vision of the Founders that we have fallen. Essentially, we are on the disastrous course of Utopianism. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Loren | 12/8/2013

    " An outstanding book from top to bottom. All I wish is that it explored the topics in greater detail - it's a fantastic review of the utopian writers in contrast to those who influenced our republic. I highly recommend it! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Daniel | 7/12/2013

    " Good read, but nothing 'really' new "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marcia | 2/16/2013

    " Those who need to read this- high school and college students, parents and grandparents, "Independents" and Liberals ...etc, won't and to the Conservative this just reinforces what they already know. It could have been written in a less boring manner though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 J. R. | 2/9/2013
