Leviathan on the Right: How Big-government Conservatism Brought Down the Republican Revolution
Despite an ostensibly conservative Republican president and Republican control of Congress, government is bigger and more intrusive than ever.

This book shows how the Bush administration, Congress, and large parts of the Republican Party and the conservative movement have abandoned traditional conservative ideals and embraced the idea of big government.--Publisher description.
