Libertarian Nation: The Call for a New Agenda, by James WalshCould the partisan awards on the political stage make Americans ignore the real debate? “Libertarian Nation: The Call for a New Agenda” is a discussion of the rise of statism in recent politics from both major political parties, and how it is slowly sapping liberty from America. Criticizing the Bush, Clinton, and Obama administrations, author James Walsh argues his points and calls for America to stand against the advancement of statism. Stating the current libertarian agenda simply and clearly, “Libertarian Nation” is a fine and recommended read for those who wish to better understand modern America.--Midwest Book Review

Liberty in Troubled Times: A Libertarian Guide to Laws, Politics and Society in a Terrorized World, by James WalshDon't blame al-Qaeda. Don't blame Ashcroft. Look to yourself. Since the terrorist attacks of 9/11, the United States has been swinging from one extreme to another. At first, most citizens were so worried about being killed that they called for security at almost any cost. Then, when that cost became clear, some citizens protested that the amount was too high. From a keen Libertarian perspective, Walsh analyzes the effects of 9/11--and some Americans' childish notions of "liberty," demonstrating that Americans' ideas of liberty had been blurring for years. And he argues that these troubled times can force a clarification of what words like "liberty," "society" and "rights" truly mean. -- from the publisher
"James Walsh demonstrates that putting risks in perspective is not only useful, but good reading, too." -- John Stossel, ABC News

"Rather than just railing against the bad guys, Walsh gets inside their heads. And that makes for some great reading." -- Neil McCarthy, author of The Under 40 Financial Planning Guide
