Political Theory

Liberty and Limited Government


This three-session conference focused on The Struggle for Limited Government by Dr. John Samples. The book examines the successes and failures of the Reagan era and its aftermath as a guide to a renewed effort to limit the power of government. Dr. Samples’s work thus provided the opportunity for the conferees to discuss the idea of limited government both theoretically and in historical context.
