LIBERTY & TYRANNY Hits One Million Copies Sold

New York, NY (Authorlink News, September 16, 2009) – Louise Burke, Threshold Editions’ Executive Vice President and Publisher at Pocket Books, announced today that Mark R. Levin’s clarion call to conservative America, LIBERTY & TYRANNY: A Conservative Manifesto, has sold one million copies, a rare publishing milestone.  Published six months ago on March 24th, 2009, LIBERTY & TYRANNY debuted at #1 on the New York Times bestseller list, spent twelve weeks in the #1 position, and has remained in the top ten ever since.

Just as Barry Goldwater’s Conscience of a Conservative articulated conservative principles in the 1960s, LIBERTY AND TYRANNY is the modern conservative movement’s roadmap back to its principled roots, and an action plan for returning conservatives to elective office in the years to come.  As provocative, well-reasoned, robust, and informed as his on-air commentary, Levin’s narrative has galvanized readers to begin a new era in conservative thinking and action. 

Louise Burke also announced the acquisition of world rights to Mark R. Levin’s next book, which will again be political in theme, through his attorney, David Limbaugh.  Pocket Books Vice President and Senior Editor Mitchell Ivers, Levin’s longtime editor, will edit.

Mark R. Levin, host of one of the country’s largest nationally syndicated talk-radio programs, is president of Landmark Legal Foundation.  His previous books, MEN IN BLACK: How the Supreme Court Is Destroying America and RESCUING SPRITE: A Dog Lover’s Story of Joy and Anguish, both reached #3 on the New York Times bestseller list.  He has worked as an attorney in the private sector and as a top adviser and administrator to several members of President Reagan’s cabinet.  He holds a B.A. from Temple University and a J.D. from Temple University School of Law.
