From Booklist

Live and let live is the basic premise behind libertarianism. But how does that translate in politics, economics, social policy, and modern culture? Brennan, ethics and economics scholar, offers a very clear and concise explanation of libertarianism, its historical roots, and its increasing relevance to contemporary politics. Libertarianism is a political philosophy that puts respect for individual liberty at the center of a just society, with no exceptions to the principle that all human relations should be voluntary. Brennan debunks popular misconceptions from the equating of libertarianism with conservatism to the assumption that most libertarians are followers of Ayn Rand. Noting the range of beliefs among libertarians, Brennan details basic support for individual freedom, including same-sex marriage, reproductive rights, and open borders, and opposition to drug laws, foreign interventions, and regulations. Brennan details disagreement with the Tea Party and Occupy movement and presents libertarianism as an alternative to Democrats and Republicans. A fascinating primer on a philosophy that is gaining attention. --Vanessa Bush
