IT'S OUT: Murray Rothbard's New Book on the Progressive Era

From the blurb:
Rothbard's posthumous masterpiece is the definitive book on the Progressives. It will soon be the must read study of this dreadful time in our past. — From the Foreword by Judge Andrew P. Napolitano.

 The current relationship between the modern state and the economy has its roots in the Progressive Era. — From the Introduction by Patrick Newman

Progressivism brought the triumph of institutionalized racism, the disfranchising of blacks in the South, the cutting off of immigration, the building up of trade unions by the federal government into a tripartite big government, big business, big unions alliance, the glorifying of military virtues and conscription, and a drive for American expansion abroad. In short, the Progressive Era ushered the modern American politico-economic system into being. — From the Preface by Murray N. Rothbard

  1. Been waiting for this beauty for a long time.
    I'm only just past the Forward and the Introduction, and it's already great.

  2. I should mention also, that another indispensable book on the subject is James Ostrowski's "Progressivism: A Primer on the Idea Destroying America." Rothbard's is more detailed of course. Ostrowski's is concise, blunt, and scathingly critical of progressivism.
