OK intro text to the economic theory behind anarchic systems of defense, arbitration, law, and security. Answers the standard objections. Very little history here, and very little about non-defense/law. Its pretty targeted in that sense. I don't know what else to say about it. I don't really know why this was considered "advanced". Also it has nothing to do with chaos theory, its just a title.

Anarchic law has been done better by others, but the second essay (on defense) was more recommendable.

Also, I wish there was more time spent on mutual aid organizations which fulfill the same functions as the security corporations he describes. Corporations scare people.
