NEW YORK TIMESBESTSELLER';We need a new idea of how to govern. The current system is broken. Law is supposed to be a framework for humans to make choices, not the replacement for free choice.' So notes Philip K. Howard in the new Afterword to his explosive manifestoThe Death of Common Sense. Here Howard offers nothing less than a fresh, lucid, practical operating system for modern democracy. America is drowningin law, lawsuits, and nearly endless red tape. Before acting or making a decision, we often abandon our best instincts. We pause, we worry, we equivocate, and then we divert our energy into trying to protect ourselves. Filled with one too many examples of bureaucratic overreach,The Death of Common Sensedemonstrates how weand our countrycan at last get back on track.
