The Passion for Liberty makes a convincing case for freedom, using a moral (as opposed to utilitarian) argument. This is an impressive primer on the principles of liberty. National Review A remarkably clear, concise, and engaging statement of the 'libertarian' defense of liberty. What is especially useful is the application of that defense to specific public policy issues, something that the reader will find helpful and challenging. -- Nicholas Capaldi, Loyola University, New Orleans
