Volumes in WRITING SPACES: READINGS ON WRITING offer multiple perspectives on a wide-range of topics about writing.

Consequently, each essay functions as a standalone text that can easily complement other selected readings in writing or writing-intensive courses across the disciplines at any level.

The book made huge theoretical advances. He was the first to prove that the government, and only the government, can destroy money on a mass scale, and he showed exactly how they go about this dirty deed. But just as importantly, it is beautifully written. He tells a thrilling story because he loves the subject so much. The passion that Murray feels for the topic comes through in the prose and transfers to the reader. Readers become excited about the subject, and tell others. Students tell professors. Some, like the great Ron Paul of Texas, have even run for political office after having re

The Private Volker Fund Memos of Murray N. Rothbard The hugely influential memos by Murray Rothbard, written in the 1950s and early 1960s, were kept under wraps for fifty years. They were commissioned by the William Volker Fund and concerned most every important thinker and book of the period. Through them, Rothbard provided guidance for the publishing and philanthropic efforts of the Fund itself, which was the main flame for liberty in these dark times. Rothbard’s writing is deeply insightful, brazenly honest, and penetrating in every way, as he treats every subject from strategy to h

Review: Hayek uses flawless logic to prove that Keynesian economics, which is touted today as our own modern monetary policy, is inflationary economics. The end result of this application can only be a situation which is worse than the one it was intended to remedy. Hayek proves that individuals acting independently are unable to provide the consistent statistical information necessary on which to base an ordered economy. Hayek then explains how Keynes’ pursuit of a perfect monetary policy will never be realized because artificial intervention can only produce inflationism. Hayek’

Laws are the whitewash that governments use to disguise the ugly fact that they steal money from productive people, then use it to control how they live their lives. Being merely one-sided contracts, laws have no moral validity whatsoever; but eight generations of government schooling have conned Americans into supposing that they are magic, to be held in respect and awe. Accordingly, if there is a tax law, most people tend to obey it. In this masterpiece, perhaps the most important book he ever wrote, Irwin Schiff shows that there is no such thing; how even that veneer of respectability fa
