Format: Paperback
I can't recommend this book highly enough. I consider it a must-read, not just for all members of the Libertarian Party (LP), but for anyone who has an interest in libertarianism, but who finds his (or her) concern for the poor getting in the way.
Dr. Kyriazi makes a convincing case that, by embracing the idea that land can be treated as the unlimited property of a relative few, the LP has strayed from its classical liberal roots, and, in doing so, has alienated itself from the very people who have the most to gain from the reduction of big government -- the working poor.
By returning to those roots; by adopting a position on private land tenure that, unlike its current position, is logically consistent with the principle of self-ownership; by professing openly that land is that to which all individuals have an equal right of access; and by advocating as a means of upholding this right the community-collection of land rent, the LP will have finally ridded itself of the glaring logical fallacy in its otherwise consistent platform that has plagued it from its inception. Only then will the LP be able to unify "labor" and "capital," i.e., wage-earners and entrepreneurs -- groups that Georgists have long held to be natural allies, with land monopolists being their mutual adversary.

Format: Paperback
I was much impressed with the aptly titled book "Libertarian Party at Sea on Land" by Harold Kyriazi.  It is surely controversial, but presents the Georgist view with care and clarity.  The evaluations of other writers on the subject described in later pages is quite original and eminently fair.  If the author's purpose was to make the reader re-think the issues, it has surely been achieved.

Format: Paperback
This book arrives at a crucial time in the life or death of the Libertarian Party. The LP continues to do miserably at the polls in a country that refuses to accept the party platform as a whole. Indded, the party is often cast as a caricature of the extreme right by the mainstream media when it is not being ignored. Will the LP choose to broaden its appeal to the left and center or simply remain the Church of Ayn Rand, Reedemer. Kyriazi provides a well-written alternative to the standared libertarian fare, by espousing a form of libertarianism unfamiliar to most people--"Geo-libertarianism." He is able to build a bridge in political philosophy connecting the freedom fighters of the past with modern libertarians. He also creates a common ground on which the left may be able to converse with the right.
