Libertarians in America
Here's a link to John Fund's review of Brian Doherty's new book, "Radicals for Capitalism," a history of the modern libertarian movement. The book focuses on five key influences: Ludwing von Mises, F.A. Hayek, Ayn Rand, Murray Rothbard and Milton Friedman. Those are pretty good choices. I haven't read it yet -- Matt snagged the copy that was sent to me at the Register, but I'll get it back. Brian spent a few days at the Register while researching it, and by thumbing through it and checkiong the index, I see it has a fiarly extensive section on R.C. Hoiles and Freedom Newspapers (now Communications). That's gratifying, as I think R.C. is too little known or appreciated.
