Tens of millions of Americans, from Generation X-ers to baby boomers and beyond, are rediscovering libertarianism, a visionary alternative to the tired party orthodoxies of left and right. In 1995, a Gallup poll found that 52 percent of Americans said, the federal government has become so large and powerful that it poses an immediate threat to the rights and freedoms of ordinary citizens. Later that year, The Wall Street Journal concurred: Because of their growing disdain for government, more and more Americans appear to be drifting - often unwittingly - toward a libertarian philosophy.

Libertarianism is hardly new, but its framework for liberty under law and economic progress makes it especially suited for the dynamic new era we are now entering. In the United States, the bureaucratic leviathan is newly threatened by a resurgence of the libertarian ideas upon which the country was founded. We are witnessing a breakdown of all the cherished beliefs of the welfare-warfare state. David Boaz presents the essential guidebook to the libertarian perspective, detailing its roots, central tenets, solutions to contemporary policy dilemmas, and future in American politics. He confronts head-on the tough questions frequently posed to libertarians: What about inequality? Who protects the environment? What ties people together if they are essentially self-interested?

    " Not utopia - just a framework for it, where individual rights are respected and government is the protector of those rights rather than a criminal syndicate. "
