Liberty: A Path to its Recovery Archives
Liberty: A Path to its Recovery

This 1949 book by Harper is a short and very readable overview of the concept of liberty, written at a time when liberty was under threat in all sorts of ways. He discusses three types of liberty: of thought, of personal relationships, and economic freedom. He also explores the relationship between rules and liberty as well as the importance of distinguishing voluntary from involuntary relationships. The final chapter is a musing on how liberty can be recovered.
