The new issue of The American Conservative features an exclusive excerpt from Ron Paul’s forthcoming book End the Fed. You can read it on-line right now in PDF form by subscribing to TAC.

Also in the new issue: Michael Brendan Dougherty profiles Peter Schiff, the economic mastermind who predicted the crash and is now contemplating a move into politics; Andrew Bacevich examines our increasingly Soviet strategy in Afghanistan; one important philosopher and conservative thinker considers another as Kenneth Minogue discusses Michael Oakeshott; Patrick Allitt reviews John Derbyshire’s forthcoming We Are Doomed; and much more.

If you’re already a subscriber, consider giving the magazine for thinking conservatives to a friend or family member — it makes a great gift for Constitution Day.
