I'm an independent writer and editor with decades of experience in educational publishing. My latest book, The Language of Liberty, is very much in line with my educational interests. It is a lexicon of 101 political terms designed to build understanding of our system of government, one word at a time. These are terms that we all read, hear and use whenever we talk politics: Congress, president, rights, diplomacy, constitution and more.
Democratic government depends on having a public that can understand and discuss the nation's affairs, and that depends on citizens understanding its basic political vocabulary. The Language of Liberty will help. Taken together, the entries provide an overview of our whole system of government, its logic and its practical workings. As I like to say, The Language of Liberty amounts to a user's guide to American politics.
