A fine collection of Rothbard essays from the early to mid 1990s, when he came very family into the paleo camp. I found the essays on foreign policy and nationality to be the highlight of the book, speaking as they do to a topic alomst universally ignored or else treated only very superficially by other libertarian writers.

Murray Newton Rothbard was an influential American historian, natural law theorist and economist of the Austrian School who helped define modern libertarianism. Rothbard took the Austrian School's emphasis on spontaneous order and condemnation of central planning to an individualist anarchist conclusion, which he termed "anarcho-capitalism".
