In Charles Murray’s newest book, By the People, the sometimes controversial author gives a spirited rebuke to government overreach, and proposes a campaign of non-violent civil disobedience in which citizens would simply refuse to follow many federal and state regulations. He argues that Americans are wrongfully and routinely obstructed by government as they run businesses, practice a vocation, raise families, or follow their religious beliefs.  Murray is the W. H. Brady Scholar at the American Enterprise Institute. He came to national attention in 1984 with Losing Ground, and in 1994, with The Bell Curve: Intelligence and Class Structure in American Life, written with Richard Herrnstein. A book signing will follow his appearance.
