Either no one bothered to proofread the manuscript before sending it to print, or the proofreader had the reading level of a fourth grader. Seriously, I've never encountered so many blatant typos in a published piece of work probably in my entire life. It's embarrassing.

Also, William Gillis: "Whence" literally means "from where." So when you put "From Whence" in your title, you do not sound more erudite. You just sound idiotic.

Other than that, pretty solid collection of essays; a good primer for

Excellent presentation of freed-market and mutualistic economic and political theory. This series of short, clear essays from a variety of writers. dating from the late 1800s through the present day touches on everything from the development of the theories themselves to the solutions they propose to a number of problems. Eye-opening perspectives and a challenging and empathetic focus on non-coercive responses to often systemic non-equalities in a range of economic spheres.

This book is poorly edited, but don't let that deter you. It is fascinating. It could also be titled "Why liberal ends can only be achieved with market means without the state."

I tried, but it seems to be written primarily for people who are already on board with the philosophy being espoused. There's a lot of jargon and unconventional (though probably correct) use of political/economic terms that I couldn't get past.

I'm not rating it, since I didn't finish it.

Interesting, original perspectives. Series of short essays/opinion pieces allows for lots of range, but found some arguments were not fully developed.
