Yes, the rumors and relatively incessant posts, tweets, and pre-roll and post-roll commercials are all true: On June 28, Matt Welch and I are releasing our book-lenght manifesto, The Declaration of Independents: How Libertarian Politics Can Fix What's Wrong with America.
For ongoing coverage of reviews, book tour dates, events, media appearances, and all things Declaratory, go to Declaration2011.com. Here's a sampling of the early notices on the book:
"An enthusiastic, entertaining libertarian critique of American politics, brimming with derision for the status quo and optimism for the future and confident of the right direction"—Kirkus Reviews
"This is the up-to-date statement of libertarianism. Not warmed-over right-wing politics, but real, true-blooded libertarianism in the sense of loving liberty and wanting to find a new path toward human flourishing."—Tyler Cowen, Marginal Revolution
"I thought the title was 'You're a libertarian and you just don't know it,' but I think that's basically what the book's about. Think of it as a political alarm clock."—Amy Alkon, The Advice Goddess
