About the Book

Americans have long been chafing under taxation. In this book James Ring Adams reveals the colorful histories behind today's tax revolts and their 'trickle up' effect on the federal government. Adams, a reporter and writer for the Wall Street Journal, traveled the nation for more than ten years to cover the tax revolts that sprang up from California to Massachusetts, from Michigan to Texas. Adams shows how rising tax burdens can stifle a stat's economy and how failing burdens can bring it back to life. He includes a series of case studies that trace the origins of the tax revolt and show its impact on America's future.
