What books/authors should I read to best understand Liberty?Submitted by Micah68 on Wed, 04/10/2013 - 02:42
Hi, everyone. I've been very grateful for how much I've learned from Dr. Paul and all of you here about the arguments and philosophies behind the Liberty movement, and various ways to think about the issues of the day. I've realized, though, that I still have huge gaps in my understanding of the main libertarian thinkers of the past; and I've decided that I would like to fill these in with a lot of reading this spring/summer, and beyond. I hear these names like Rothbard and Hayek and such bandied about here, but I have only a vague idea really about the details of what these people wrote about. Of course, I know a little about Ayn Rand, but still not enough, to be sure.
So I wanted to ask you all what you would recommend as 'must-read' material for getting up to speed on what I should know about such things. Which books and authors are in your top ten (or so) list? Where should I start?
Thanks in advance for the help! :)
