Libertarianism : a primer by David Boaz( Book )

16 editions published between 1997 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 1,237 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Libertarianism is hardly new, but its framework for liberty under law and economic progress makes it especially suited for the dynamic new era we are now entering. In the United States, the bureaucratic leviathan is newly threatened by a resurgence of the libertarian ideas upon which the country was founded. We are witnessing a breakdown of all the cherished beliefs of the welfare-warfare state. Americans have seen the failure of big government. David Boaz presents the essential guidebook to the libertarian perspective, detailing its roots, central tenets, solutions to contemporary policy dilemmas, and future in American politics. He confronts head-on the tough questions frequently posed to libertarians: What about inequality? Who protects the environment? What ties people together if they are essentially self-interested? A concluding section, "Are You a Libertarian?" gives readers a chance to explore the substance of their own beliefs
The libertarian reader : classic and contemporary readings from Lao-tzu to Milton Friedman by David Boaz( Book )

17 editions published between 1997 and 2015 in English and held by 742 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first collection of seminal writings on a movement that is rapidly changing the face of American politics, The Libertarian Reader links some of the most fertile minds of our time to a centuries-old commitment to freedom, self-determination, and opposition to intrusive government. A movement that today counts among its supporters Steve Forbes, Nat Hentoff, and P.J. O'Rourke, libertarianism joins a continuous thread of political reason running throughout history. In The Libertarian Reader, David Boaz has gathered the writers and works that represent the building blocks of libertarianism. These individuals have spoken out for the basic freedoms that have made possible the flowering of spiritual, moral, and economic life. For all independent thinkers, this unique sourcebook will stand as a classic reference for years to come, and a reminder that libertarianism is one of our oldest and most venerable American traditions

. This blueprint for reform is the alternative to both the status quo and the calls for even more government interference in our personal and economic activities.

Market Liberalism presents a new vision for American government, a positive, optimistic vision rooted in the principles of the Founders and suited to the challenges of the 21st century. It offers the promise of a free, prosperous, and pluralistic society for America and the world

Libertarianism - the philosophy of personal and economic freedom-has deep roots in Western civilization and in American history, and it's growing stronger.

3 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tens of millions of Americans are rediscovering libertarianism, a visionary alternative to the tired party orthodoxies of left and right. In 1995, a Gallup poll found that 52 percent of Americans said "the federal government has become so large and powerful that it poses an immediate threat to the rights and freedoms of ordinary citizens." Later that year, the Wall Street Journal concurred, saying, "Because of their growing disdain for government, more and more Americans appear to be drifting--often unwittingly--toward a libertarian philosophy."

Beyond liberal and conservative : reassessing the political spectrum by William S Maddox( )

1 edition published in 1984 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Politicians and political analysts continue to use a single liberal-conservative dimension to analyze the ideological views of the American people, but that approach is increasingly inadequate. Professors Maddox and Lilie have gone beyond the liberal-conservative continuum. By separating questions aof economic policy from issues involving civil liberties, they find four basic ideological group: liberals, conservatives, libertarians, and populists. This book goes a long way toward explaining such phenomena as ticket-splitting, the impact of the baby-boom generation, and the internal conflicts both major parties will face over the next few years
