あらすじ・解説

Richard Painter and Peter Golenbock present a clear description of rule of law - arguably the single most important principle underlying our civilization. They also describe the abuses of power that have occurred throughout our nation's history. Beginning in Puritan New England with the infamous Salem Witch Trials, American Nero makes vivid stops at The Red Scare of the 1920s, Japanese-American internment, the McCarthy Era, and, much more recently, President Trump's attempt to violate the First Amendment by banning Muslims from entering the US.

While Trump is not the first offender, he is arguably the most blatant, and this unflinchingly honest and insightful work presents in devastating detail the ways in which our current president has trampled the rule of law with his attacks on the freedom of the press, the independence of the judiciary, and the autonomy of the justice department.

This is not a book about right vs. left - instead, it is about the rule of law, a principle that transcends partisan politics, and how vital it is to the survival of our country. This book serves as a call to action, looking ahead to a brighter future for our country, one where citizens and officials alike protect our rights and honor their responsibilities.

Definitely in my top 3

I selected this book based on my admiration of Mr. Painter. Every time I have had a chance to see him comment on television I tune in particularly. He has a "no-nonsense" appraisal of the happenings of the day and it was certainly on display in the writing of this book.

The book was well-written, fast-moving, and detailed. I would highly recommend it, and I enjoyed it very much!
