Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Jacob Huebert's outstanding survey of libertarianism ranks as the best work of its kind since Murray Rothbard's For a New Liberty. Huebert navigates successfully difficult waters. . . . Huebert's book merits close study by anyone interested in libertarianism." - The Mises Review

"Words fail me in my attempt to say how much I welcome this book. . . . This is a brilliant, magnificent book. It is the work of a libertarian genius, one who, happily, has many years, no, many decades, in which to make that signal contribution to libertarianism I have grown to expect from this young man. I am privileged and honored to be a member of the same libertarian movement as he. If the future of liberty is in the hands of young men such as this, I cannot help but be optimistic." - Libertarian Papers

"…its unabashedly radical nature is a welcome surprise for a book that could just as easily have be en me ande r ing and equivocal in its case for libertarianism. With an abundance of suggestions for further reading throughout, it should appeal to all readers from the most well-informed libertarian to those new to the radical theory." - Policy Magazine

"I cannot recommend this book highly enough. Libertarianism Today is the most important book on libertarianism since Rothbard's For a New Liberty. Not only does it stand in the Rothbardian tradition, it is a principled, uncompromising, iconoclastic, consistent, unvarnished defense of libertarianism that Rothbard would be proud of." - Freedom Daily

Congressman Ron Paul

In Libertarianism Today Jacob Huebert draws on his mastery of libertarian philosophy, Austrian economics, and history, to show limited government, and free-markets are the only cures for the numerous problems facing our nation. Huebert also provides an excellent introduction to libertarian thought and a concise summary of the history of the libertarian movement. Anyone interested in learning more about the past, present, and future of the liberty movement can benefit from reading this book."

Llewellyn H. Rockwell
"J.H. Huebert is a scholar who can really write. If you want an unvarnished look at the libertarian movement, and care about the future of liberty, read this book."

If you are at all interested in an intelligent, concise and extremely well-written overview of libertarianism, I would highly recommend this book. This is the book that you want to have on hand to give to your libertarian-curious friends when they ask you where they should go to learn more. But do keep a copy for yourself---it is a joy to read. Huebert's writing is probably the smartest and most accessible I have ever encountered in a book of this type. Two thumbs up!
