Floyd Arthur "Baldy" Harper (February 7, 1905 – April 1973) was an American academic, economist and writer who was best known for founding the Institute for Humane Studies in 1961. He worked with FEE in its early years.
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.
