“Blasting away myths is one of Ms. Wolf’s great strengths; she firebombs with
Knowledge and authority.”— The New York Times

As the practice of democracy becomes a lost art, Americans are increasingly desperate for a restored nation. There is a general sense that the "system" is in severe disorder and possibly nearing collapse. While it is easy to identify many of our political and economic problems, truly functional solutions are not so clear. In Give Me Liberty: A Handbook for American Revolutionaries, bestselling author Naomi Wolf illustrates the breathtaking changes that can take place when ordinary citizens engage in the democratic system the way the founders intended. She tells how to use that system, right now, to improve our lives, communities, and country.

Naomi Wolf was born in San Francisco in 1962. She was an undergraduate at Yale University and did her graduate work at New College, Oxford University as a Rhodes Scholar. Her essays have appeared in various publications including: The New Republic, Wall Street Journal, Glamour, Ms., Esquire, The Washington Post, and The New York Times. The Beauty Myth, her first book, was an international bestseller. She followed it four more books, including just last year. The New York Times’ bestseller The End of America: A Letter of Warning to a Young Patriot.
Ms Wolf is cofounder and president of the Woodhull Institute for Ethical Leadership and cofounder of the American Freedom Campaign, an American movement for democracy and the rule of law. (http://www.americanfreedomcampaign.org)

Her new book, just out from Simon and Schuster, is Give me Liberty: A Handbook for American Revolutionaries.

“Patriots like Madison, Paine and Franklin would certainly applaud Naomi Wolf and recognize her as a sister in their struggle.”— Mark Crispin Miller
