Convinced that the American political system was endangered by complacency, demagoguery, party propaganda, and the tyranny of public opinion, James Fenimore Cooper felt compelled to write this minor classic of American political theory. Fascinated with deception, he wrote in order to express the voice of simple, honest and...fearless truth on the peculiarities of the American system of government. Among the topics discussed in his 43 chapters are Republics, Equality, Liberty, Advantages of Democracy, Disadvantages of Democracy, Prejudice, On the Press, Deportment, Distinctive American Principles, and Advantages of Aristocracy. All are discussed from the point of view of a brilliant conservative thinker. Download and start listening now!
