2010 Economics Book of the Year

Stricly Confidential: The Private Volker Fund Memos of Murray N. Rothbard, Edited by David Gordon

This collection of 40 previously unpublished Rothbard papers provides a glimpse of the broad range of Rothbard's scholarship. From political theory to foreign policy, literature and, of course, economics, Rothbard had unique insights and views across a broad spectrum of the social sciences and beyond.

For economists, Rothbard's fascinating comments on Hazlitt (positive) and his major league takedown of the conspiratorial book, Keynes at Harvard, are worth the price of the book, alone.
