Audiobook edition, narrated by Jim Vann.

The Rothbard Collection You’ve Been Waiting For!

The work of Murray Rothbard has never been more relevant.

As Joseph Salerno and Matt McCaffrey write in the introduction to the Rothbard Reader, “Few economists manage to produce a body of work that boasts a serious following twenty years after their deaths. Murray N. Rothbard is a rare exception. More than two decades since his passing, his influence lives on, both in the work of a new generation of social scientists, and among a growing number of the general public.”

Few economists have also managed to produce a body of work as voluminous as Murray Rothbard, which can make it difficult for readers to digest the full scope of his contributions to Austrian economics, political philosophy, revisionist history and so much more. Enter the Rothbard Reader, a collection of Rothbard articles hand chosen by Salerno and McCaffrey, designed to serve as an excellent introduction for readers to new Rothbard, while featuring content that may be new to even the most die-hard Rothbardian.

Released 03/2/2016 on what would have been Rothbard’s 90th birthday, the Rothbard Reader is a timeless tribute to an unforgettable scholar.
