First 1/2 of the book is logical, theoretical mind exercise. 2nd half debunks/analyzes various other governance theories popular at the time (1850's, Frnace). Much still applies.
Only drawback is it may make you weep at how far America has fallen from it's founding principals.
The Law is one of the most enlightening and easily understood essays on politics and economics. To the best of my knowledge, it is not yet required reading in schools. The Law might be read in conjunction books by authors such as Hayek, Mises, Friedman and Rand. Unlike Utopian socialist writers, Bastiat's analysis of political coercion of the economic community and their effects on the nation do not require a great deal of faith or hope and change to be understood.
