Many of the books listed here or in the links are not libertarian in outlook.  This is especially true of the history section.  Still, I recommend them because the authors do a capable and often fascinating job of presenting their subject matter.

These lists are forever growing and are in an early stage of development.

Iíve put together a starter set in each category for people who are interested in reading but donít know where to begin. I know Iím missing some gems.  If you have some strong recommendations, please shoot me an email.
