Great book, very helpful in my class. It's required reading but it's a good read.
The Constitution of Liberty
F. A. Hayek
University Of Chicago Press
Hayek undertook a monumental task when he set out to write the The Constitution of Liberty. Hayek aimed at finding the proper limits between public and private life. How far should the authority of the state extend? What areas of life should be beyond the reach of the government? Hayek is stating his version of the general principles of classical liberalism, based on utilitarian ethics. Since his ...
On Christian Liberty (Facets)
Augsburg Fortress Publishers
Freedom through Enslavement
Before being set free by the reading of Romans 1:17, Martin Luther was enslaved to the bondage of works righteousness. He was acutely aware of his need for salvation but sought it through the means of works instead of finding it through faith in Christ. Upon discovering the "righteousness of God" Luther was set free from his bondage and was able to become a slave to Christ. It is this freedom ...
Give Me Liberty!: An American History, Second Seagull Edition, Volume 2
W. W. Norton & Company
Great Undergrad Text
I am taking two courses of American history at my community college. This book is the one that my history professor chose for the class. It is a solid treatment of the history of the United States focused around the advancement of liberty. It does not take steps to ensure a level of detail in the major wars like the Civil War or Revolution. Instead, it directs the student's attention towards ...
John Stuart Mill
On Liberty is a profound and engaging philosophical and practical defense of personal liberty, epitomized by the famous Harm Principle that all are free to do as they wish provided it does not harm others. It is the state's job to ensure the former right is upheld and the latter transgression punished. Mill's argument is very strong - convincing not only as an inherent right but also as a ...
Empire of Liberty: A History of the Early Republic, 1789-1815 (Oxford History of the United States)
Gordon S. Wood
Oxford University Press, USA
Not for the Faint of Heart
This is a brilliant but difficult book, which took me a few months to read. Wood writes well and is in absolute command of his material, but he does not write with the narrative flair of Kennedy or McPherson, the two most readable volumes of this series. But your investment in this book will be rewarded if you stick with it. Wood demonstrates the nation's profound shift from an English ...
Give Me Liberty!: An American History, Second Seagull Edition, Volume 1
W. W. Norton & Company
Great for a History Textbook
This is one of the most interesting US History books I have had to read for school. The writing flows well and makes it easier to read than most others of its kind. It avoids "listing" things like a lot of history books do (e.g. "the English did this, this, and this. The French did this, this, and this, and the Spanish colonization affected the Aztecs in this way, this way, and this way") which ...
Liberty and Tyranny: A Conservative Manifesto
Mark R. Levin
The loss of freedom in America
This book is a must read for every American. It exposes the shifting of power from the citizens to the state. The historic lessons explained in this book clearly show how we are going down the path of socialism, and liberty is being sacrificed in exchange for total control by the state over every aspect of our lives. This book should scare you into taking action to halt this journey to serfdom.
Liberty, Equality, and Power: A History of the American People, Volume I: To 1877
John M. Murrin
Paul E. Johnson
I have been using this text in my American history survey's at a major university for about the last four years. I chose it in the first place because, unlike most of the other texts I have received for consideration, its focus is more upon information than interpretation. Moreover, it avoids the kind of pc bs one finds so pervasive in academia today i.e. it does its best to be objective, does ...

Born for Liberty
A thorough and informative history of women in the U.S.
Evans' "Born for Liberty" is an excellent history of women in the U.S. The women's rights movements are often times portrayed as struggles of white middle-class women for white middle-class women. Evans includes the struggles and contributions of working-class women, black women, and immigrant women to the women's rights movements. I definitely recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn ...
Ladies of Liberty: The Women Who Shaped Our Nation
The "Better Half" of History
What's in the history textbooks is something less than half the story. To read the words of the American Founding Fathers one would think they lived on the giddy heights of lofty philosophy. One gets a more complete and human view of them from their wives, daughters and mothers. In addition to putting human flesh on the marble statues, this book fleshes out our understanding of how woman ...
The Attack on the Liberty: The Untold Story of Israel's Deadly 1967 Assault on a U.S. Spy Ship

Liberty in broad daylight, in international waters, on a calm peaceful sea, with the intent of sinking the ship.

LIBERTY AND TYRANNY
MARK R. LEVIN
A CONSERVATIVE MANIFESTO
Concerning Christian Liberty
Kessinger Publishing, LLC
The Fire and Hammer of the Word of God (Jeremiah 23:29)
Martin Luther's treatise "Christian Liberty" (or "The Freedom of a Christian") is perhaps the most powerful and concise presentation of the Christian life ever written. I cannot recommend this work highly enough. I rank this among the very best of Luther's works (and that is really saying something). If an inexpensive copy were still in publication I would buy every copy to give as gifts to ...
Celebrate Liberty! Famous Patriotic Speeches & Sermons
A nice collection
This is a collection of speaches from some of our lesser founding fathers. It includes speaches by John Quincy Adams, Daniel Webster, Noah Webster, George Bancroft, and Elias Boudinot. Each is preceded by some background information about the inidividual and other historical tidbits. Provides some excellent insight into the period.

The Science of Liberty: Democracy, Reason, and the Laws of Nature
Should be a required textbook in Texas and everywhere.
NOTE and EDIT: My initial review focused on how this book might be used to educate and enlighten the American populace and help head-off a number of troubling developments in politics, education and religion. But the author takes a much larger view than that, helping me understand for the first time ever the differences and relationships between Liberalism, Conservatism and Progressivism in ...
