More About This Textbook

Overview

And, in all sincerity, can anything more than the absence of plunder be required of the law? Can the law -- which necessarily requires the use of force -- rationally be used for anything except protecting the rights of everyone? I defy anyone to extend it beyond this purpose without perverting it and, consequently, turning might against right.

    A must read

    A great book for everyone interested in law and for anyone who loves liberty. Ron Paul recommended it - enough said.

    Must Read

    Frederic Bsstiat had the ability to explain economic principles so anyone can understand. He wrote during the French revolution of 1850 when France was taking a sharp turn to Socialism. Everything he writes conveys common sense in common language so anyone can grasp this point.

    If Frederic Bsstiat were alive today, he would be disappointed with our failure to keep the Law within its proper domain.

    Must Read for any Patriot!

    Short read written a long time ago in France. Amazing how even now this book can teach the dangers of liberalism. I highly recommend reading this book to understand why the "nanny state" does not ever work. Read this book!

    Wow, Bastiat so clearly defines and calls out what our society refuses to

    This is a great book, very few errors in the OCR I believe. Bastiat was someone who was willing to call socialism exactly what it really was/is: Legal plunder. This book is still incredibly accurate and relevant to our day. I recommend this book to anyone interested in conservative and libertarian ideology.

    Freedom Works!

    Liberty is the answer!

    A true law degree our lawyers miss in law school

    This is one of the best books I have ever read. Written by the author, Frederic Bastiat, while he knew he was dying in 1850, he left a gift to this world. Every sentence carries significant weight. Each page builds your understanding, yet you can open to any page and read it and it makes sense as he discusses and addresses a particular issue. Incredible. Everyone from High School up through adults and our senior citizens should read this piece of work. The Law, A Blueprint for a JUST Society. It is what we need in the U.S. today!

    Highly recommended

    Wow! Hard to believe that this book was written in the 1850s. Very timely. All of this book applies, indefinitely.

    Very interesting and timely

    Really enjoyed the book. It was written a while ago, but a good perspective on today's political circus.
