The Structure of Liberty

Justice and the Rule of Law

Second Edition

Randy E. Barnett

  • A substantial reworking of one of our era's definitive libertarian works by America's leading libertarian intellectual
  • Author's Supreme Court briefs have made him one of the most influential and controversial intellectual figures in American law and politics
  • The most original and engaging libertarian theory of government since Robert Nozick's Anarchy, State, and Utopia
  • Genuinely multidisciplinary, drawing on insights from law, philosophy, politics, and economics
  • A new Afterword to this second edition responds to several important criticisms of the original work and further explains how his "libertarian" approach is more modest than either the "social justice" theories of the left or the "legal moralism" of the right.
