ENDORSEMENTS

“The idea is phenomenal, and the story is fascinating.”

—Ambassador Thomas J. Miller, former US ambassador to Greece

“This is a brilliant novel. I loved the intelligent work behind it all and the wry humor throughout.”

—Loretta Tofani, Pulitzer Prize-winning former reporter for The Washington Post

“In a chilling twist on It Can’t Happen Here, John Boykin imagines the complete collapse of America’s constitutional system. With a taut narrative and eye for political nuance, he takes the reader on a nail-biting odyssey to an inspired, unexpected solution.”

—Susan Wels, best-selling author of An Assassin in Utopia

CHECKS & BALANCES THEORY

The Constitution relies on institutions to counter each other. That theory works fine in the absence of political parties–which did not exist when the Constitution was written.

CHECKS & BALANCES IN PRACTICE

As soon as political parties enter the mix, the theory of  checks and balances–a stroke of genuine genius–tends to atrophy in practice.
