The Encyclopedia of Libertarianism
Ronald Hamowy, Cato Institute
SAGE, Aug 15, 2008 - Philosophy - 623 pages
As a continuation of the older tradition of classical liberalism, libertarian thinking draws on a rich body of thought and scholarship. Contemporary libertarian scholars are continuing that tradition by making substantial contributions to such fields as philosophy, jurisprudence, economics, evolutionary psychology, political theory, and history, in both academia and politics. With more than 300 A-to-Z signed entries written by top scholars, The Encyclopedia of Libertarianism is purposed to be a useful compilation of and introduction to libertarian scholarship. The Encyclopedia starts with an introductory essay offering an extensive historical and thematic overview of key thinkers, events, and publications in the development of libertarian thought. The Readerís Guide groups content for researchers and students alike, allowing them to study libertarianism topically, biographically, and by public policy issues.
