I just finished reading Mr. Beitler's book and found it to be a must have for anyone wanting to understand the philosophies that have lead to the ever increasing size of government, and the prevailing socialist attitudes in America today. I especially enjoyed chapter six " A Brief History of Economics" in which he exposes the flawed logic that has brought the US economy to the brink of complete collapse.

I have found this book to be an invaluable resource that I keep nearby at all times for an easily understandable explanation of different economic policies and ideologies. The brief histories of individuals like Karl Marx and Milton Friedman make this book more than well worth the money. I highly recommend it!

I have been very interested and active in politics my whole life. I saw Michael Beitler speak at a local meeting, and, after reading this book, I bought 3 copies of his book, so that I could give to others. This is the best political book I've read. It tells you about the philosophies back to Aristotle and Plato. It sums up those philosophies so that anyone can understand, and it brings you chronologically through the ages to the present. I loved it, read it twice. It is packed with names, and their philosophies. Everyone should be this enlightened.....and politically savvy. Loved it.

This is I think the definitive modern day manifesto of the Libertarian movement. Many books provide economic models, historical and practical justifications for Libertarian policy, but few provide such a clear and concise moral justification.

He follows the Objectivist model, which may come across to some as too abstract but in reality is like going to philisophical rehab!

In this book, Dr. Beitler gives one of the most concise run downs on all things Libertarian. In his work you will get a quick and well reasoned explanation of people and principles forming the landscape of free market economics. Many of these you may not have heard of, but you should have. A great and quick path to enlightenment.
