Left and Right: The Complete Edition

March 7, 2007 by

Well, folks, it’s here sooner than you ever imagined: Left and Right: The Complete Edition, edited and largely written by Murray Rothbard. This is of course the journal that started it all. It was the first to forge libertarianism out of the ruins of leftism and rightism of the 1960s. Even today, it is a wild ride. This book is 690 pages!

The plan is to get this in our regular catalog, and it will be there in two weeks. But if you just can’t stand the wait, you can snag a copy here for $40 (and this is a bargain).

Who would have believed that this would ever appear again? I know some folks who would kill (non-aggressively) for some of these back issues. Well, the world can be a more peaceful place in which to live and read.

Mr. Tucker, what is the chance of getting the entire Rothbard-Rockwell Report out? (If not in print, online?)

I still remember receiving “Left and Right” at the same time that I subscribed to “The Objectivist”. What an incredible difference in style and radicalism! Being a student activist back then (anti-VietNam, anti-draft, anti-tax, pro-libertarianism, etc., etc.) was a challenge when you could see the FBI taking pictures from the building tops, and taking on the state seemed so obvious that I jumped in with no thought to the dangers.

“L&R”, along with numerous student libertarian journals and fellow activists, kept our spirits up when difficulties arose. Mr. Libertarian (Murray, of course) presented a “plumb-line” and we always read and re-read “L&R” amongst ourselves.

BTW, you might want to mention that H. George Resch and Leonard Ligger were co-editors with Murray.

Best to you,
Just Ken

Any plans to get this volume and the 2010 edition of Left and Right: The Prospects for Liberty as PDFs in the Mises Literature archive?
