The Discovery of Freedom
by Rose Wilder Lane

Although marred by excessive patriotism and love of military defense forces, this is still a worthwhile book. It presents a libertarian view of history. Over and over again, she drives home the importance of freedom.

She is very repetitive, like Ayn Rand, but she presents many good insights, facts, and quotations that need to be brought out. Sometimes she puts things in a clearer perspective than I have seen anywhere before. It is a good book to give to a right-winger to make him more libertarian.

Year Read: 1973
