Here’s a list of all the best libertarian, anarchist, anarcho-capitalist, and voluntaryist literature. This is by no means an exhaustive list and new works are being reviewed and added all the time.
- For a New Liberty – Murray N. Rothbard. Written in 1973, Rothbard outlines his vision for an anarcho-capitalist society. Persuasive arguments and clear prose defines Rothbard and For a New Liberty is no different.
- The Ethics of Liberty – Murray N. Rothbard. Where For a New Liberty looks at the libertarian society as a whole (praxis), The Ethics of Liberty focuses on natural law, ethics and political philosophy (theory). Together, the two make up a complete, systematic definition of liberty.
- A Spontaneous Order – Christopher Chase Rachels. This is a great book. Chase does a really good job organizing this book into a comprehensive look at an anarcho-capitalist society. The opening chapter on epistemology and praxeology is outstanding.
- The Economics and Ethics of Private Property – Hans Hermann Hoppe. A collection of Dr. Hoppe’s articles on various topics dealing with private property norms.
- Human Action – Ludwig Von Mises.
- Man, Economy, and State – Murray N. Rothbard.
- Economics in One Lesson – Henry Hazlitt
