Editorial Reviews

Review

“I wish liberals and even radicals felt and wrote as strongly about the Iron Heel of government power as does Robert Higgs.”  —Alexander Cockburn, columnist, The Nation; co-editor, CounterPunch


"Against Leviathan is one of the best books on economic policy in the last few years. Higgs’s case against government oppression is tight and persuasive. Virtually every page of this easy-to-read book tells something important about the economy or government." —David Henderson, Professor of Economics, Naval Postgraduate School; author, The Joy of Freedom


"This is a book that should be read by anyone concerned with American freedoms in the 21st century." —Thomas Gale Moore, Senior Fellow, Hoover Institution

"Defenders of liberty need look no further for intellectual ammunition. This hard-hitting book exposes the multitude of ways the growth of the welfare-warfare state threatens our freedom and prosperity." —Ron Paul, U.S. Congressman
