Anarchy Without Bombs

Cooperation Without Coercion

The Machinery of Freedom now online!

with 3 comments

More than 30 years ago, the first edition of David Friedman’s The Machinery of Freedom was the book that first made me comfortable calling myself an anarchist. The second edition, from 1989, has been out of print for a while, but David has just put online a complete copy of this masterpiece.

Even if you’re already an anarchist, there is much to learn from this wonderful book. I highly recommend it.

If you prefer it in paper form, a used paperback copy is available at Amazon for only $100.  At that price, it is STILL worth it.

  1. George Woodcock’s survey, Anarchism, was a book I found of real interest while working in Portland, Oregon, in the early 90s. Thanks for the link to the .pdf.
