It is a series that will also appeal to the general student of liberty, for Buchanan has—rnperhaps more than any other contemporary’ scholar—helped us to view politics without the romantic gloss that characterizesrnso much normative political theory and that slips unthinkingly into so much popular commentary. Buchanan has beenrna resolute defender of’the ideal of a society of free and responsible individuals,’ and has been a painstaking analyst of therninstitutional structure that might best support such a society. Buchanan stands with von Mises, Hayek, Popper, and Friedmanrnas one of the great twentieth-century scholars of liberty.”rnCall 800-955-8335 I iKprtv Fl iriflrnFax 317-579-60^0 ^^^5^1^^””° 6060rnor writernWe pa’rnshipping onrnprepaid orders.rn8335 Allison Pointe Trail, Suite #300, Dcpt.
