ON-Lion Letter
James L. Buckley may be the only American alive who has held high office in each branch of the federal government -- as a U.S. Senator from New York, an Undersecretary of State under President Ronald Reagan, and a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit.  His unique understanding of how Washington works equips him to address the intrusive and exponential growth of the federal government in the past 40 years.

In Encounter Books' new Freedom at Risk:  Reflections on Politics, Liberty, and the State, Buckley's collected essays, musings, and speeches tell the real story of why government is incapable of managing an economy and why the transformation of the federal government into a centrally administered welfare state is undermining the critical safeguards that the Founders wrote into the Constitution.

In a sober and perceptive analysis spanning a lifetime in Washington, Freedom at Risk outlines the steps that must be taken to save constitutional government, if that is still possible.
