      Won this in ' giveaway."The common good, the common wealth, the public riches, the public matter, the public thing, the people's property AND the people's elbow: these are all variations of the res publica."Ahh I see where the author is going with this. He wants Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson in office! Ha, just kidding. I had to take this in a different direction, because it seems that the other reviewers already summed this book up pretty well and there's no need for me to regurgitate the same thin [...]

      I received this book free through ' First Reads program.This book is primarily a review of John Adams' ideas and reasoning in choosing a republic as the best form of government, including those for which he was involved in writing a Constitution (i.e. Massachusetts and the United States). It draws a great deal of the 56 pages of primary content from The Works of John Adams, Volumes IV, V, and VI (Thoughts on Government, Defence of the Constitutions, etc.). It also includes Thoughts on Government [...]

      I received this book as part of Good Reads First Reads Giveaway.This book is a review of the arguments in favor of the United States' republican government (turns out capitalization makes a difference). I can't say it's a review of the development of our Constitution because the book focuses primarily on John Adams' writings and his arguments for our form of government.Overall, the author does a good job of laying out the differences between different forms of government and clearly differentiat [...]

      I received this book as part of the First Reads program for the purpose of a fair review.Overview: If you are like most Americans, you might think that America was supposed to be a democracy. It might surprise you to find out that there is a difference between a republic and a democracy. Mr. Butts has the help of his favorite Founder’s words to show us what the Founding Fathers wanted for this nation.Likes: We get a copy of the Constitution in this book. That is almost all you need for a sell [...]

      Won this as a giveaway.This book is a great reference book to understand what a republic is and all of the main pieces that go into that. The book does a good job defining other types of governments as well and explains how the United States is not one of those governments (democracy primarily). If you're looking to understand this in a very concise manner, this book is for you. This isn't a sit down and read for enjoyment type book though. Be ready to learn.

      I received this book from First Reads. This book is good for anyone who is interested in the history of the American government and why this type of government was chosen. This Republic is a very short read but it does have some good information.

    7. Tyler on said:

      A succinct, intelligence study on what a Republic is meant and not meant to be. If you are interested in learning more about the idea our Founding Fathers built the United States on, then this is an excellent starting point.
