Something the administration can do to leave a lasting legacy and fulfill an important part of his promise of more transparent government.

New London, Timothy and Christina Sanderfur’s Cornerstone of Liberty examines how dozens of new developments in courtrooms and legislatures across the country have shifted the landscape of private property rights since 2005. Through a combination of real-life stories and solid legal analysis, the authors explain how key issues like eminent domain, civil asset forfeiture, and environmental protection regulations have evolved and how they should be reformed.

In Lukewarming: The New Climate Science that Changes Everything, two environmental scientists with over a half century of experience between them explain the science and spin behind the headlines and come to a provocative conclusion: climate change is real, and partially man-made, but it is becoming obvious that far more warming has been forecast than is going to occur, and some of the catastrophic impacts can be shown to be implausible or impossible.
