9780765803306: Anarchy and the Law: The Political Economy of Choice (Independent Studies in Political Economy)

Private-property anarchism, also known as anarchist libertarianism, individualist anarchism, and anarcho-capitalism, is a political philosophy and set of economic and legal arguments that maintains that, just as the markets and private institutions of civil society provide food, shelter, and other human needs, markets and contracts should provide law and that the rule of law itself can only be understood as a private institution.

To the libertarian, the state and its police powers are not benign societal forces, but a system of conquest, authoritarianism, and occupation. But whereas limited government libertarians argue in favor of political constraints, anarchist libertarians argue that, to check government against abuse, the state itself must be replaced by a social order of self-government based on contracts. Indeed, contemporary history has shown that limited government is untenable, as it is inherently unstable and prone to corruption, being dependent on the interest-group politics of the state's current leadership. Anarchy and the Law presents the most important essays explaining, debating, and examining historical examples of stateless orders.

Section I, "Theory of Private Property Anarchism," presents articles that criticize arguments for government law enforcement and discuss how the private sector can provide law. In Section II, "Debate," limited government libertarians argue with anarchist libertarians about the morality and viability of private-sector law enforcement. Section III, "History of Anarchist Thought," contains a sampling of both classic anarchist works and modern studies of the history of anarchist thought and societies. Section IV, "Historical Case Studies of Non-Government Law Enforcement," shows that the idea that markets can function without state coercion is an entirely viable concept. Anarchy and the Law is a comprehensive reader on anarchist libertarian thought that will be welcomed by students of government, political science, history, philosophy, law, economics, and the broader study of liberty.

Review:

"Finally, a fit rejoinder to people who begin sentences with There ought to be a law' ..."
P. J. O'Rourke, author, Parliament of Whores and On the Wealth of Nations

"Scholars interested in scrutinizing the links between political and legal institutions will find Anarchy and the Law an invaluable resource."
Tom W. Bell, Professor of Law, Chapman University

"The dynamics of government growth has proven that no matter how benign the original intent and no matter how limited their scope, government programs will eventuate in abuse and malignancy. Anarchy and the Law assembles key essays that embrace this view."
Ronald Hamowy, Professor Emeritus of History, University of Alberta, Canada

"Anarchy and the Law is a breakthrough work, one which anyone interested in politics will find intellectually exciting."
Ralph Raico, Professor of History, Buffalo State College

"Anarchy and the Law is a must read' for anyone open to ideas and interested in the preservation of liberty."
Thomas J. Nechyba, Professor of Economics, Duke University

"Anarchy and the Law is an essential book on the theory and history of non-state' legal systems in which law enforcement is privatized, including essays by both proponents and skeptics."
Lawrence H. White, Friedrich A. Hayek Professor of Economic History, University of Missouri, St. Louis
