We are under attack every day of our lives... by, of all things, labels. Political Systems and the Nature of Freedom is the first volume of a three-part series that defines the structures of government and the relationship these institutions and ideologies have with the people who exist within them, by reviewing and redefining the myriad of labels used to describe their nature and function. Governance, democracy and freedom are concepts that are frequently bandied about and just as frequently fought over or taken for granted. Author Robert Upshaw comparatively examines different theoretical forms of government and carefully looks at actual governments and how they do or do not conform to these definitions. In this book he delves into the role these institutions have in the lives of individuals, and presents a case study, using the Constitution of the United States and modern America. A variety of political theories are also examined for their relationship to the nature of freedom. Carefully and concisely written, Political Systems and the Nature of Freedom is an important book for our times and for anyone interested in the way government affects the governed as it details the results of this Great Experiment and what freedom means in the Twenty-First Century.
