Description

"


There are few more stale battles in Australian politics than those that pitch right against left.


Libertarianism--the philosophy of government that pairs free market economics with social liberalism--presents a vigorous and viable political alternative to the old left right partisan shouting match.


Offering surprising new answers to old questions such as immigration and civil rights, libertarianism provides a framework for tackling contemporary problems like privacy, the environment and technological change.


In The Libertarian Alternative, Chris Berg offers a new agenda for restoring individual liberty in Australia, revitalising politics and strengthening our sagging economy.
