Betrayal of the American Right

The introduction, preface, and first three chapters of Murray Rothbard‘s The Betrayal of the American Right are now available online as web pages. The entire book is available for free as a PDF. The print version is gorgeous and well worth the price. You’ll never think of Left and Right the same way again.

“How many Americans realize that, not so long ago, the American right wing was almost the exact opposite of what we know today?”
