Essentially Murray

I have to keep reminding myself that David Gordon’s The Essential Rothbard, just now available from the Mises Institute, is meant to be slight — just 180 pages (and 50 pages or so of that a comprehensive bibliography and index). The book’s a primer, not intended to be a thorough analysis of Rothbard’s massive body of work. And as an introduction to basic Rothbardian thought, it’s very good. Anyone intimidated by Man, Economy and State or Power and Market who wants to just dip a toe into Murray’s world should really get hold of this. I just wish there were more. Greedy me.
