An excellent set of Rothbard's sprawling historical study of the libertarian roots of the American founding. 'Rothbard's ambition was to shed new light on Colonial history and show that the struggle for human liberty was the heart and soul of this land from its discovery through the culminating event of the American Revolution. These volumes are a tour de force, enough to establish Rothbard as one of the great American historians' (Mises Institute).
