Libertarianism seems fairly straightforward on the surface: Keep your government out of my bedroom and my wallet.” But how that principle applies to real-world political and economic issues is complicated.

In Libertarianism, from A to Z, acclaimed Harvard economist Jeffrey Miron sets the record straight with a no-frills dictionary that walks us through the movement's controversial stances on prostitution and drug use to explore issues ranging from abortion to the war on terror. He shows us how to follow those principles to their logical and sometimes controversial ends and how to think like a libertarian.

About the Author:

Jeffrey A. Miron is a Senior Lecturer in the Harvard Department of Economics. He has appeared on CNN and PBS's News Hour and is frequently quoted in the New York Times and Forbes. He lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

Review:

Kevin M. Murphy, George J. Stigler Distinguished Service Professor of Economics, Booth School of Business, the University of Chicago
"In Libertarianism, from A to Z, Jeff Miron provides a much needed introduction to Libertarian thinking. In the process, he demonstrates the power of economic analysis. His book provides a much needed lesson in how to reach a conclusion rather than start with one. Students and pundits could benefit greatly from reading Miron’s work and following his example."

Brink Lindsey, Vice President for Research, Cato Institute
"In clear, common-sense prose, Jeffrey Miron looks at government policies from A to Z. To all of them he applies one simple test: do the benefits of government action outweigh the costs? And most of the time, he concludes the answer is no. Whether or not you always agree with him, you'll find your own thinking sharpened by his insistent, incisive skepticism." Choice
“An excellent small volume that explains the libertarian approach and philosophy as it applies to a wide variety of issues and topics...With its wealth of information, this book deserves a place on the shelves of all academic libraries...Essential.”
