Two scholars explain the economic, social, and political ideas that have characterized libertarian thinking over the years. The authors' dense writing could have been challenging, but narrator Leon Nixon makes everything clear with his nuanced interpretations and appealing vocal character. His phrasing shows he has a good grasp of the philosophical underpinnings of the movement. Libertarianism became prominent in nineteenth-century America as a reaction to growing government limits on personal freedom, property rights, and free-market capitalism. Going through many iterations since then, libertarianism today is associated with small-government conservatives and fierce opposition to taxes, regulations, and social justice programs. This enlightening audiobook will help open minds to what the authors say are the humane values of libertarians rather than the polarizing oversimplifications that stigmatize their movement.
