Conceived in Liberty Volume I: The American Colonies in the 17th Century
by Murray Rothbard

History of the English-American colonies in the 17th century. Packed with information and presented with emphasis on the libertarian lessons, it serves as a model for future libertarians to reinterpret all of human history.

The writing is not as good as his usual, making the book too long, but it is worth reading.

Year Read: 1975
