Libertarianism: A Primer

0001_david_boaz_libertarianism_a_primer“Libertarianism: A Primer is a bracing shot of 100-proof libertarianism guaranteed to render mute the last defenders of big, paternalistic government. With plain-spoken eloquence, David Boaz unveils a vision of America that has at its core an abiding respect for personal liberty and freedom writ large.”

WILLIAM F. WELD, MASSACHUSETTS

“America is a country full of people who feel personal liberty and individual responsibility in their guts. This book puts those guts into words. America is also a country full of politicians, academics, and self-possessed elites who mistrust liberty and responsibility to the bottom of their souls. This book plants a kick in that fundament.’

—P.J. O’ROURKE

“These days, you can’t understand politics—and why so many Americans are so unhappy with it—without knowing what libertarianism is all about. The backlash against government is more than just a gut feeling; it is a philosophy, and one that demands to be reckoned with. For anyone who wants to explore the ideas that are energizing the right and exasperating the left, David Boaz’s clear and often passionate book is the place to begin.”

JONATHAN RAUCH, AUTHOR OF DEMOSCLEROSIS

“I hope everybody reads this book. My only concern is that, if we ever do wise up and dump the federal government, I’ll lose my biggest source of comic material.”

—DAVE BARKY
