On Rand Paul's senate website he has a list of recommended readings. Often times, we debate whether Rand is libertarian or not. I would find it difficult to believe that he is not a libertarian at heart based upon his reading list.
Below is a short list of suggested titles for a student, or anyone else interested in learning more about freedom and the role of government in a free society.
