In Freedom Champions: Stories from the Front Lines in the War of Ideas, Atlas profiles 30 think tank leaders from around the world who share their inspirational and instructional stories about how they advanced liberty in their countries. From selections taken from the epilogue, Atlas CEO Brad Lips writes, “I’m optimistic that the think tanks profiled in this book — and those in the broader Atlas network that touches more than 80 countries — will play important roles in the years to come. Crises will emerge, and we will need effective, principled Freedom Champions to move opinion toward sound policy solutions. 
Atlas’s mission is to find such people, and help them establish effective think tanks that carry the message of freedom to all who will listen. 
To succeed in our mission, we need to learn from the successes and failures of our think tank movement. We need to be attentive to new challenges and new opportunities in our market. 
At Atlas we have our heroes, whose bravery inspires us every day. Let me share with you the sentiment, which is prominently displayed on our walls at Atlas, of Joaquim Nabuco, a nineteenth century Brazilian writer, diplomat and abolitionist: ‘Educate your children, educate yourselves in the love for the freedom of others, for only in this way will your own freedom not be a gratuitous gift from fate. You will be aware of its worth and have the courage to defend it.’ I hope you are motivated to join with Atlas and the Freedom Champions in this book to face the challenges of our times.
