Huebert Contributor. As government grows by leaps and bounds, libertarianism is receiving more attention than ever.
Written from a contemporary perspective by an attorney and law professor who is also an award-winning journalist, Libertarianism Today provides an engaging introduction to the movement's ideas and people, serving as a jumping-off point for readers who want to know more. Beginning As government grows by leaps and bounds, libertarianism is receiving more attention than ever. Beginning with the general libertarian principle that one person cannot initiate force against another, even if that person is part of the government, the book examines the implications of this principle for a wide range of contemporary issues: war, health care, personal liberties, economic policy, monetary policy, and intellectual property rights.
It introduces the people behind the libertarian movement and explores the strategies--including education, activism, and litigation--libertarians are pursuing to advance their ideas. By laying out the current state of the movement, author J.
Huebert shows how, even as it gets more mainstream-media exposure than ever, today's libertarian movement has only become more radically opposed to the Washington DC status quo. Get A Copy.

My only point of criticism is that the book is too focused on libertarianism in American context.
The next revision or a spin-off book should stay more on the general theory, applicable for all the world and have something else than the American flag on the cover.
Jul 29, John Boettcher rated it it was amazing. The best, concise description of what Libertarians are all about, and what they are not about. This will put many misconceptions to rest that are out there in the media today. Libertarians are fundamentally about FREEDOM, and believe that every human was born with this gift, it is not something that the government, state, or any other human power gives to us. It is a right that we are all born with. Anything that coerces us into taking away our freedom is wrong and immoral.
In a nutshell, that i The best, concise description of what Libertarians are all about, and what they are not about. In a nutshell, that is my poorly defined definition of Libertarian-ism, but the book will go through this methodology point by point in an easily read manner.
