Covenant of Liberty: The Ideological Origins of the Tea Party Movement
About this book

Wiki

In Covenant of Liberty, tea party leader Michael Patrick Leahy shows how the tea partiers have reinjected the ideas and principles of the Founding Fathers into political discourse--and the revolutionary effect they have had.” (Michael Barone, senior political analyst, Washington Examiner )

An elegantly written and clear-eyed portrait of the centuries-long struggle to constitutionally protect individual liberty from a governing class who would, in the name of of the “public interest,” harness the power of the state for private gain. (Randy E. Barnett, professor of constitutional law, Georgetown Law Center and author of Restoring the Lost Constitution: The Presumption of Liberty. )

Concise, illuminating history...Leahy explains how the modern Tea Party offers a path to recapture the liberties that our constitutional republic was founded to secure. (Richard E. Wagner, professor of economics, George Mason University )

No political movement in recent memory has had the immediate impact of the Tea Party. Leahy lucidly explains both the historical and philosophical roots of the Tea Party, providing a useful guide both to his contemporaries and to future historians. (Ambassador John Bolton )
