A Guide to Classical Liberal Scholarship. Revised Edition.
Palmer, Tom G.
This booklet introduces students to a wide range of works of classical liberal scholarship. The works described can be used in researching term papers, theses, and dissertations; each book and article provides valuable insights and information that can make the difference between an "A" and a "B" paper. The tradition of classical liberalism reflects the thought of individuals who value peace, individual liberty and freedom of thought, speech, and action. This annotated bibliography provides a brief introduction to works with the following divisions: (1) "The Heritage of Classical Liberalism"; (2) "History"; (3) "Economics"; (4) "Philosophy and Social Theory"; (5) "Property Rights"; and (6) "Selected Issues" (which include: the environment, urban issues; race and ethnic conflict; international trade and relations; poverty and self-help; economic development; social analysis; cartels--business and labor; depressions, monetary policy and economic cycles; the industrial revolution; feminism; public goods; privatization; law and the "Free Society"; education; health, safety, and regulation; personal liberties; freedom of expression; socialism and state economic planning; liberty and languages; war and peace; and polycentric law).
