Editorial Reviews

From the Author

After echoing a few scientific doubts about the danger of tobacco, and especially the very fleeting second-hand smoke, I have tried to show that, even if we accept the dreadful claims of government propaganda, coercive public regulation of production and consumption of tobacco has no rational basis but the glorification of state paternalism and its growing power. As we know it at the end of the 20th century, the state is, much more than tobacco, a very real public health problem.

About the Author

Pierre Lemieux was born in Sherbrooke (Quebec, Canada) in 1947, and has become well-known for defending individual liberty over the last quarter of a century. His books, some published by major Parisian publishers such as the Presses Universitaires de France, have been translated into many languages. He has been cited in numerous works of political theory and in encyclopaedias as a reference point for the new liberal thought. Pierre Lemieux is also a frequent contributor to the Canadian, French and American press.
