5.0 out of 5 stars This book may have changed my life, 27 Dec. 2013
This review is from: Inventing Freedom: How the English-Speaking Peoples Made the Modern World (Hardcover)
I have lived half my life in Australia and half in London. I love both these countries and also the USA where, to my misfortune, I have been only rarely. The preamble to the Declaration of Independence is the closest thing I have to a creed. So, you will gather that I was predisposed to this book. The difference that it has made to me is that now I absolutely KNOW that the Anglosphere is worth fighting for. In the broad of things, I am utterly unimportant. But I am going to do what I can to keep alive the values that people, much greater than I, have died for. And I'm going to find a way to meet Daniel Hannan, so I can shake his hand.

When confronted by the prospect of our values, our culture, our heritage being eroded or distorted, I am want to recite these timeless words: "I know not what course others may take, but as for me: give me liberty or give me death".

I too have found this book of true significance. It should, I believe, be required reading in not only British schools, but also in the rest of the Anglosphere. I keep on buying copies and giving them to people, as they too deserve the confidence of their national culture, and this confidence would be there's if only they knew it, and these days fewer and fewer people know it, or so it seems to me.
I am pleased to say that I have met Dan (we call him Dan The Man in my house). He is an excellent speaker, using no notes, no microphone and without any umms and errs. I would vote for this man to be PM if only he could find a way to stand.
