In Liberty Defined, congressman and #1 New York Times bestselling author Ron Paul returns with his most provocative, comprehensive, and compelling arguments for personal freedom to date.

The term “liberty” is so commonly used in our country that it has become a mere cliché. But do we know what it means? What it promises? How it factors into our daily lives? Most importantly, can we recognize tyranny when it is sold to us disguised as a form of liberty?

Dr. Paul writes that to believe in liberty is not to believe in any particular social and economic outcome. It is to trust in the spontaneous order that emerges when the state does not intervene in human volition and human cooperation. It permits people to work out their problems for themselves, build lives for themselves, take risks and accept responsibility for the results, and make their own decisions. It is the seed of America.

This is a comprehensive guide to Dr. Paul’s position on fifty of the most important issues of our times, from abortion to Zionism. Accessible, easy to digest, and fearless in its discussion of controversial topics, Liberty Defined sheds new light on a word that is losing its shape.

Listener Opinions

    " Very well written and researched. For those of you 'scared' of Ron Paul and his ideas, these aren't just his words. He quotes MANY early libertarians, and economist, and foreign policy makers. He has plenty of well supported information. As I read it, I also thought, this was how our country WAS at some point and we got away from it. Even if you're not a libertarian or Ron Paul fan, I think you should still read this with an open mind to get more of understanding of libertarian principles BEFORE the main stream media skews them and makes you think, "Oh those crazy Tea Party people." "

    " This is a fantastic format for a book about politics. Paul discusses pressing matters like his stance on abortion issue by issue in chapter like sections. I would recommend this to anyone who wants know exactly where paul stands on issues, without having to listen to rumours and slander. Its worth noting that if you are familiar with the principles of liberty most of this will be old information. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Kevin Krajewski | 2/3/2014

    " In Dr. Paul's latest book he addresses 50 hot issues that effect every aspect of our lives. From abortion to envy, monetary policy and creation v. evolution, Dr Paul attacks it using the libertarian axioms of non-aggression and private property. I highly recommend looking through it even if your not a fan of Ron Paul. I'm sure you'll find yourself agreeing on more topics then you would think. "

    " Well, this was not surprisingly a little uneven. Like Paul's speaking presence, it was at times repetitive and even incoherent (he likes to digress in writing, too.) But he's still the most visible presence in America speaking up for true liberty, so we need his voice, imperfect though it be. Actually he does have a knack for explaining some of the political issues and realities; I prefer other writers' economic explanations though. "
