Murray Rothbard was a true polymath as any review of his work in poltical economy, history, economic history, the history of economic thought and philosophy would show.
His dedication to his “purist” vision of a free society animated his whole work. Unfortunately this focus may deter many readers who do not share Rothbard’s politics from exploring his work. That’s a shame as his thinking and writing is clear and illuminating. Rothbard nevers beats around the bush. Non-libertarians need to discover Rothbard and cherry pick to their heart’s content.
This book shows another side to Rothbard’s career. This volume covers politics, economics, culture and the movies. So in many ways it’s his most accessible, and entertaining, book for non-libertarians.
It is probably one of the best volumes of journalism covering American politics and cultural controversies in the late s to s. My guess is that in decades to come readers looking back on this period will be digging into this volume. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. Well, I was hoping for more economic based writings but this collection of Rothbard articles is quite interesting. I have been a fan of Rothbard’s economic ideas for many years but this book really is more about his political beliefs.
He’s such an incredible writer that the articles, although really dated, are still so interesting. Rothbard was in many ways H. One person found this helpful.

Beside his 25 fascinating books on history, economics, and political theory — Murray Rothbard was a great polemicist and social commentator. Here’s some of his outrageous best.

As just one example, consider the war against the Serbs. Leftists from all quarters Hitchens, Lerner, etc. Murray points out that there never was Bosnian nation or even a Yugoslavian nation for that matter.

The Irrepressible Rothbard : The Rothbard-Rockwell Report Essays of Murray N. Rothbard
In the last five years of his life, Murray N. Rothbard–anarchist, economist, activist, historian–co-edited the monthly Rothbard-Rockwell Report, which featured some of his best polemical writings. This book collects many of the greatest pieces. In decades past, he had built alliances with Stevenson Democrats, New Leftists, and the Libertarian Party, without ever changing his core political beliefs.
So the book is filled with attacks on Bush’s war on Iraq, big-government “libertarians,” Clintonian liberalism, and Newt Gingrich’s still-born “Republican Revolution,” all in Rothbard’s curmudgeonly style. He is a joy to read. This volume is a rothbafd for fans of Rothbard.
