Publisher Description

Presidential candidate and longtime representative Ron Paul of Texas is a true enigma in American politics: at once a libertarian who believes in outlawing abortion and halting illegal immigration, and a traditional conservative who fervently opposes the drug war, the PATRIOT Act, and America’s interventions in the Middle East. In Ron Paul’s rEVOLution, Brian Doherty, a senior editor at Reason magazine and Reason.com, documents the meteoric rise of Paul from relative obscurity to national prominence, and examines the fanatically devoted political movement that has arisen around him. Based on original reporting, Ron Paul’s rEVOLution is a remarkable portrait of an extraordinary man who has become a hero to a rising generation of cross-partisan young activists.

Excellent Reading for the Ron Paul Curious

"Ron Paul's Revolution" serves as an excellent overview of Ron Paul's political career. While Paul's followers will find plenty of interesting insights within some familiar historical moments, the book actually is more illuminating to for those who are curious about the movement but have never gotten close. Ron Paul is only half the book. Brian Doherty deftly describes the lives and goals of many of Paul's loyal followers, helping political observers understand what drew them to the presidential candidate. You don't have to be a libertarian or a Paul loyalist to find the book an interesting read.
