Amazon.com says of the book . . .
Conceived as the companion volume to Boaz's Libertarianism,
this anthology comprising the likes of Lao-tzu and Milton Friedman is a
treasure trove. That's because libertarianism touches on such important
issues as the nature and extent of individual rights, the proper powers of
government, and the virtues and shortcomings of the marketplace, and
besides, it has tempted many of history's best minds. Pound for pound,
the most impressive piece of reasoning here is philosopher Robert
Nozick's attempt to defend a "minimal state, limited to the narrow
functions of protection against force, theft, [and] fraud, [and]
enforcement of contracts" and the view "that any more extensive state will
violate persons' rights not to be forced to do certain things." Still, I
wonder if Nozick has always turned down federal research grants and
has always refused to pay income taxes, and if he hasn't, why not?
