Highly recommend Nisbet

Robert Nisbet has been a seminal influence in my life and intellectual world-view since I've read his work. I can't say I've read all of them, but the most important or popular. I think libertarians should read him because I see his work as a great critique of the state from a traditional conservative's perspective, and some of his prescriptions vital to combating the state.

Mr. Brad Lowell Stone's bio I haven't yet read, but works I recommend are below.

The Quest for Community: A Study in the Ethics of Order & Freedom

Twilight of Authority

The Present Age: Progress and Anarchy in Modern America

Prejudices: A Philosophical Dictionary

A bonus is he has a great writing style.
