High 5 Ebook Critiques of 2020

In 2020, Law & Liberty continued to be one of the best places on the web to find incisive reviews of the latest books on law, politics, and culture. Here are the five most-read book reviews of the year:

1. Higher Ed is Crumbling by Scott Yenor

“Products of old education would have cheeks that sting red if the country is not respected. Today’s students only blush because of their own “privilege”. (Review: John M. Ellis, The Collapse of Higher Education)

2. Howard Zinn: Fake Historian by Ronald Radosh

“Zinn had a different project in mind than most historians. As he wrote, history is not about understanding the past, but about changing the future. “(Review: Mary Grabar, Expose Howard Zinn)

3. The Expanding Tyranny of Cant, by Theodore Dalrymple

“The purpose of Cant is either to present the person who is expressing it as morally superior to others or to present himself to himself for who he really is, or to silence other people.” (Review: Justin Tosi and Brandon Warmke, Grandstanding)

4. America’s Ruling Class, by Mark Pulliam

“Many government officials have almost unlimited discretion to determine whether individuals, corporations, and nonprofits are complying with a variety of amorphous regulations.” (Review: James R. Copland, The Unelected)

5. These truths were made for you and me by Richard Samuelson

“Lepore’s book reads like an attempt to create a plot that could help us restore a lost world, but it is not a story.” (Review: Jill Lepore, These Truths)
