Riassunto: From John Locke to WIlliam F. Buckley, Jr., "First Principles" reviews the foundational authors who contributed to the development of American government and are still shaping it today. The job of governing appears easy for those who don't do it. The difficult part is in understanding how actual, not idealizd or simplistic governance is best accomplished. The conclusion is that human nature must be given its due. "First Principles" offers, by means of 44 synopses of the great books of western political and economic thought, an abirdged, easy-to-follow classical education for the modern, overwhelmed voter.
L'autore: Tom Tripp is a political consultant and campaign manager and has held appointments in the Reagan, George H.W. Bush, and Clinton Administrations.

Mr. Tripp is secretary of the American Conservative Union Foundation and chair of FirstPrinciples.US. He resides in Wilson, Wyoming.
