The English Libertarian Heritage
edited by David Jacobson

Selections from the essays of John Trenchant and Thomas Gordon that were published as Cato's Letters. The book gives a taste of our libertarian heritage.

It is surprising to see how many libertarian ideas were well developed and expressed back in the 1700s. It is sad to think that the ideas were more popular then than they are now. These were the articles that inspired the American Revolution.

Year Read: 1974
