Why does the world speak English? Why does every country at least pretend to aspire to representative government? In this ambitious and wide-ranging polemic, the Conservative MEP Daniel Hannan argues that the institutions of representative government, personal freedom and the rule of law are the products of a specifically English tradition, which the Founding Fathers embodied in the US constitution. However, these freedoms face an unprecedented threat from regulation, centralization and bureaucracy. Felt-tip mark on lower trimmed edge.
