Twilight of Authority

By Robert Nisbet
Oxford University Press, 1975
287 pp. $10.95

A learned and penetrating analysis of Western society, in which Nisbet traces the decline of the West to the rise of welfare and warfare state bureaucracies. For this conservative libertarian, salvation lies in the revival of kinship, localism, laissez-faire, and true citizenship.
