The Ethics of Liberty and For A New Liberty should be on this list, no? :S

An excerpt from For A New Liberty is the first link. The Ethics of Liberty is the first book mentioned on the Hoppe list.

I changed the first link to go directly to the beginning of For a New Liberty and added Ethics of Liberty. Thank you.

I am aware Mike, I just thought why not put up the whole books since they’re already online?

Thanks Justin.

Since we are recommending books, could Professors Woods or Raico recommend history books, free or otherwise, that should be read?

Justin February 15, 2008 at 8:09 pm

In terms of history books, I would recommend:

Martin Van Creveld’s The Rise and Decline of the State, Murray Rothbard’s Conceived in Liberty, Jim Powell’s The Triumph of Liberty, Paul Johnson’s Modern Times, John Denson’s Reassessing the Presidency: The Rise of the Executive State and the Decline of Freedom, Tom Wood’s Politically Incorrect Guide to American History, Thomas DiLorenzo’s How Capitalism Saved America: The Untold History of Our Country, from the Pilgrims to the Present, Robert Higg’s Crisis and Leviathan, John Denson’s Costs of War.

Just as a start.

Thanks for all the great reading! Any chance you could get “Planned Chaos” by Mises? My community college had a first edition published by FEE. It was one of two Mises books along with three of Rothbard’s.
