The table of contents does not match the contents of this book. The last three essays are missing. The page numbers in the table of contents are wrong. It is not clear what the publisher is doing.

Although the contents of this book are great in scope and influence and should be read by anyone interested in current affairs and economics, this is a rather poor edition of Bastiat's works. Pages in the table of contents don't correspond to actual pages in the book, paper is of poor quality, there is hardly any editing work, hardly any titles or subtitles, no effort in layout, no font variation from body to periphery of text... It is a very confusing edition and one that is hard to get through. My high school essays where better presented than these. At any rate, get Bastiat's works, but maybe avoid this specific edition.

The March 17, 2006 (green coverEssays on Political Economy) edition is much better because a click on the index will take you to each essay.

While it's never a bad thing to have some essays by Bastiat, especially "The Law" and "What is Seen and What is Not Seen" I was disappointed that the publisher didn't make it possible to jump from essay to essay in this version by using the 5 way controller.

This work could have been written for our time. How cogently Bastiat makes the case for freedom. How little have the arguments against freedom changed. An important and well written (and translated) work.

Seminal work - still the benchmark for lucid, non-technical exposition in economics. Bastiat is the Milton Friedman of his time - debunking the same fallacies and feeble-minded economics' and legal justifications for many a government intervention.

You will search hard and long to find a man who has a better concept or grasp of how the economy works. He is simply a MUST read for anyone who really desires to be in the know. Though the book is written in the 19th century it is as current as today's headlines, which is why I call him a prophet when it comes to economy.

Bastiat explains core economic concepts in simple terms. This is a delightful rejoinder to many economic fallacies. The best-known is his dissection of the broken-windows fallacy, which this book contains, but there are many more essays included.

The book is a bit dated in various references, since it is nearly 200 years old, but it's logic and explanations hold up soundly.

The ebook is well-composed and easily readable in kindle reader or kindle for iPad.
