The life and times of Murray N. Rothbard, who showed why private individuals can do just about everything that needs to be done, by Jim Powell
Lengthy biographical essay
Manuel S. Klausner, Ford Foundation Fellow in Comparative Law at New York University declared in New York University Law Review [reviewing Man, Economy, and State], 'Lawyers and noneconomists in general, can find no more readable treatise and no more forthright case for freedom and free enterprise.'


Book Note: Rothbard: Man, Economy, and State: A Treatise on Economic Principles [PDF], New York University Law Review, Jun 1963

Serious study of volumes such as Man, Economy, and State could alleviate this problem.
