Peace Requires Anarchy


NOTE: I created this page in June 2012 and continued to update it through February 2014. However, I am no longer maintaining it. I leave it here as a record of some of the works that interested me during that time period.


The following is an incomplete list of works on the subjects of political philosophy, economics and history that I have completely read, partially read, or not yet read, but intend to read in the future.

Works that I have completely read and written blog posts about:

  1. Just got a free copy of Robert Higgs’ Crisis and Leviathan with a one year subscription to the Independent Review. Can’t wait to crack it open. This is a great list.

  2. Henry, I literally just finished reading Benson’s “The Enterprise of Law” today, and now I’m starting Higg’s “Crisis and Leviathan” since it’s the only other book on my list that I currently have a hard copy of (well actually, I have a hard copy of “Beyond Democracy” too, but I stopped half way through it since it wasn’t that great and I’m not in a rush to finish it). If you remember, let me know what you think of Higg’s book once you read it. I’ll share my thoughts in at least a blog post once I read it too if you’re interested. Thanks for the comment.

  3. Democracy: The God that Failed was impressive. Hoppe’s thought is so systematic. Very interesting position on immigration as well, which I am still at work reconciling (or perhaps understanding the differences of and deciding between) with the free immigration policy of Caplan and many others. Awesome website. I am starting to do some more serious libertarian reading and write reviews and thoughts about each work as well. Excellent list.

  4. Hi jsong0524,

    I heard that Hoppe’s “Democracy–The God That Failed” contains some pretty brilliant ideas and arguments, but had the drawback of being repetitive at times. I’m not sure when I’ll get to reading it–there are many other books I think I’d rather read first.

    I’m for open borders. Property owners should be in charge of determining who is allowed on their property. I haven’t Hoppe’s argument.
