Why Liberty: Personal Journeys Toward Peace & Freedom

All across the world individuals have learned that only by interacting peacefully can we achieve a more harmonious, prosperous, healthy and tolerant society. To these ends millions have optimistically involved themselves in a global liberty movement. 

These libertarians, while seeing the promotion of individual rights a worthwhile goal in itself, also believe that a free society is a universally beneficial one. Consider the stories of the diverse contributors who share with you the reasons that they were convinced to embrace freedom and the idea that men and women should govern themselves. 

Fifty-five authors from fifteen countries collaborate in this venture. Included are philosophers and physicians, economists and judges, military officers and environmentalists, police officers and soccer moms, lawyers and small business owners. You can read about the paths to understanding of people like well-known journalist John Stossel or Susette Kelo who fought all the way to the Supreme Court to try to keep her home from being confiscated and delivered to a private business. From Africa, from behind what was the Iron Curtain, Europe, Asia and Africa, and North, Central and South America there are dozens of tales of why these diverse people came to similar conclusions: freedom is best for all.

Here are just some of the authors printed in Why Liberty: Suzette Kelo, John Stossel, David Nolan, Tonie Nathan, Clint Bolick, Jan Narveson, Michael Shermer, Steve Cubby, Tibor Machan, Stefan Molyneux, Carla Howell, James Gray, and Vince Miller. Edited by Marc Guttman,  paperback, 398 pages, $21.95.

Cobden Press also recently released a new novel with a distinctively Objectivist bent, City Limits. While Objectivist-oriented fiction is not uncommon this may well be the first comedy with that philosophical orientation. This is a comedy that will make your cry and a drama that will make you laugh.

Our two young heroes, Brian and Tony, move to San Francisco and find it advantageous to pretend they are a couple. But there are always consequences to faking reality. Their charade puts the boys in hot water, endangering the happiness of one of them, while leading the other to new levels of self-discovery. Along the way they encounter mobsters, drag queens, "exgays" and Ayn Rand. Finally everything comes to a head when the Billie Ray Lee Evangelistic Crusade and Healing Caravan comes to town.

City Limits is a loving, funny tribute captures the essence of the City by the Bay, and its quirky residents. And, as befits San Francisco, it is the most bizarre parts of the story that are based on fact. Written by Jim Peron, president of the Storey Institute, this is a paperback, 223 pages. $14.95.

Ordering can be done by the same methods described above. Single copies by media mail would be $18.83. By Priority Mail it would be $20.95. Two copies by media mail would be $34.17, by Priority Mail it would be $35.90.
