INDIVIDUALISM: A READER

30 March 2015 - 10:08 AM

http://www.amazon.co...h/dp/1939709636

My new book, Individualism: A Reader  (an anthology that I co-edited with Marilyn Moore and for which I wrote the Introduction), is now available from Amazon. This is the first in a series of Readers to be published by Libertarianism.org. The second will be Critics of State Education: A Reader. (This is nearly completed.) The third will be on Herbert Spencer. Subsequent volumes are still in the planning stage, but Marilyn and I will keep churning them out until L.org pulls the plug.

Since there is no "Look Inside" feature on the Amazon page, here is the Table of Contents:

Bertrand Russell Interview (1959)

23 March 2015 - 08:14 AM

A fascinating interview (1959) with Bertrand Russell in which he discusses mathematics, war, sex, and how smoking saved his life. This runs around 30 minutes and is well worth watching.

This watercolor is by the Illinois artist Roberta L. Raymond. I will be getting the framed original (11x14) for my birthday in 8 days. I couldn't figure out how to post the photo itself, so you will need to use the link. (Michael, if you can incorporate the picture into this post, please do so.)

Marc Victor Speech

17 October 2014 - 10:41 AM

An excellent speech by the Phoenix libertarian attorney Marc Victor. Marc is hard-core and specializes in defending people accused of drug-related crimes.
