Many of the posaic references made by the author can be found in Hayek's book The Road To Serfdom. Any hole in the evidence alleged by leftwing critics can be filled by a familiarity Hayek's work. Hannan assumes the reader is already familiary with Hayek.

This book is a collection of essays by British Conservative MEP. Unfortunately this book is not a scholarly work and the observations and recollections are not referenced in any notations. Though I agree with many of the author's streams of consciousness on the dangers of big government and lack of democratic controls of bureaucracy this book only acts as an apologists view without providing any quantifiable facts.

Hannan's essays of the past 6 or 7 years provided a great warning, of what has transpired in Greece, Italy, Spain, and if the Economist's recent in debt report suggests, the failure in France, too.

When govt. gets too large [see Oregon], citizenry is diminshed.

This book validates the adage "don't judge a book by its cover." The title - an obvious reference to Hayek's Road to Serfdom - makes this jump off the shelf, but nothing within should come as a surprise to anyone familiar with topical events and international politics. British MP Hannan romanticizes the US and provides no novel or worthwhile observations on the current state of American politics. I had high hopes for this book but was disappointed. A flood of books on this same topic should come out soon, as the argument made (America, dying superpower, Europeanizing) is rather obvious, though misguided. Ultimately not worth reading.
