<p>In recent years, libertarian impulses have increasingly influenced national and economic debates, from welfare reform to efforts to curtail affirmative action. Murray N. Rothbards classic<b>The Ethics of Liberty</b>stands as one of the most rigorous and philosophically sophisticated expositions of the libertarian political position.</p> <p>What distinguishes Rothbards book is the manner in which it roots the case for freedom in the concept of natural rights and applies it to a host of practical problems. An economist by profession, Rothbard here proves himself equally at home with philosophy. And while his conclusions are radicalthat a social order that strictly adheres to the rights of private property must exclude the institutionalized violence inherent in the statehis applications of libertarian principles prove surprisingly practical for a host of social dilemmas, solutions to which have eluded alternative traditions.</p> <p><b>The Ethics of Liberty</b>authoritatively established the anarcho-capitalist economic system as the most viable and the only principled option for a social order based on freedom. This edition is newly indexed and includes a new introduction that takes special note of the Robert Nozick-Rothbard controversies.</p
