From conservative talk radio's fastest-growing superstar...

New York Times bestselling phenomenon and author of the groundbreaking critique of the Supreme Court, Men in Black, and the deeply personal dog lover's memoir Rescuing Sprite, Mark R. Levin now delivers the work that characterizes both his devotion to his more than 5 million listeners and his love of our country and the legacy of our Founding Fathers: Liberty and Tyranny is Mark R. Levin's clarion call to conservative America, a new manifesto for the conservative movement for the 21st century.

In the face of the modern liberal assault on Constitution-based values, an attack that has steadily snowballed since President Roosevelt's New Deal of the 1930s and resulted in a federal government that is a massive, unaccountable conglomerate, the time for re-enforcing the intellectual and practical case for conservatism is now. Conservative beliefs in individual freedoms do in the end stand for liberty for all Americans, while liberal dictates lead to the breakdown of civilized society -- in short, tyranny. Looking back to look to the future, Levin writes "conservatism is the antidote to tyranny precisely because its principles are our founding principles." And in a series of powerful essays, Levin lays out how conservatives can counter the liberal corrosion that has filtered into every timely issue affecting our daily lives, from the economy to healthcare, global warming, immigration, and more -- and illustrates how change, as seen through the conservative lens, is always prudent, and always an enhancement to individual freedom.

As provocative, well-reasoned, robust, and informed as his on-air commentary, Levin's narrative will galvanize listeners to begin a new era in conservative thinking and action. Liberty and Tyranny provides a philosophical, historical, and practical framework for revitalizing the conservative vision and ensuring the preservation of American society.

    Rush Limbaugh

    Michelle Malkin, #1 New York Times bestselling author

  • “Couldn’t be more relevant or important. It is a masterful restatement of conservative principles that is succinct...and yet comprehensive. It is thoughtful and deep but highly readable. It is timely yet timeless.” 

    David Limbaugh, #1 New York Times bestselling author

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Steve C | 2/17/2014

    " Obviously a partisan book, but a good read. Having said that, I do feel that most conservative partisans are more honest with the details and logic than their liberal counterparts. I can't remember it exactly, but I do remember the details on slavery were interesting. Maybe the 3 stars because I kept hearing Levin's voice in my head as I read. Not endearing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dennis Berwyn | 1/29/2014

    " I learned that as a Conservative I must remain alert and active to resist the purposeful destruction of our Republic. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Scott Birk | 1/26/2014

    " This was a great read. Mark Levin, a constitutional lawyer and conservative talk show host, helps expose how the Obama administration is anything BUY supportive of the Constitution. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bud Hewlett | 1/20/2014

    " Levin's rhetoric is probably a little over the top, but he presents a lot of disturbing evidence about the direction our country is headed. "

    " I must say, I used to like him. However through the years, I have changed my opinion of him. He does not debate with the other side, he just yells over them and hangs up. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lori | 11/30/2013

    " Excellent. Mr. Levin explains two opposing mindsets that are at war with one another and how each views various areas of our culture and government and he does it in a very readable, easy-to-understand manner. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Larry Sharp | 10/29/2013

    " An absolute must read. This book is based on well researched facts, it may not be popular for some, but sometimes the truth hurts a bit. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mahjr | 10/12/2013

    " This excellently written book is basically a 101 course on conservatism and statism. After reading just four chapters, I had to stop as the description and agenda of the Statist is so depressing. The rise of the Left is really catching on and the book is really just saying that America is screwed. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Denise | 10/5/2013

    " This book was given to me by a stranger on an airplane. I promised I would read it which is the only reason I finished. Very propaganda. "

    " What a wake up call, this was. Not a difficult read, and was enlightening on our slow spiral into what (after eight years of Bush and three of Obama) has become a soft tyranny. Both sides are guilty and we are all victims of governmental abuse. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karl | 10/23/2011

    " This is a must read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Terry | 9/12/2011

    " Mark Levin, talk show host, rants and raves too much for my taste. However his book is well thought out, carefully documented and very rational. I highly recommend this book. Even the liberal will have difficulting arguing with Levin's position and maintain any semblance of creditibility! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alicia | 9/11/2011

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dave | 5/9/2011

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristen | 1/25/2011

    " Not a real fan of Mark Levin on the radio, but his book does make a lot of sense. Slow to start and dry ending, but his commentaries on such things as the "welfare state" and "immigration" in the meat of the book are quite good and definitely worth the lesson in history. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jesse | 11/25/2010

    " Left vs. right is only a distraction. The real struggle has, and always will be, between liberty and tyranny. "
