“We’ve never needed this book more than now. What is libertarianism and how is it different from the Left and the Right? We need to know. And this knowledge needs to be burned into our political and social consciousness. Otherwise, we risk being forever buffeted by the winds of politics. Jeff Riggenbach’s wonderful book is the light.”
— Jeffrey Tucker
JEFF RIGGENBACH, widely known as the voice of liberty, has been reading, researching and writing about the history of libertarianism for decades.
The Libertarian Tradition represents the culmination of this work — more than 90 essays by Riggenbach, each focusing on some intriguing person or persons who contributed in their own way to the idea that we humans should live peaceful and free with each other.
Every chapter sparkles with Riggenbach’s erudition, his wry humor, and his gift for storytelling.
He takes you from the rise of the libertarian idea in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, through innovative and playful adaptations by outsiders and novelists in the twentieth century, and right into the current debates in the dawning of the twenty-first.
