We at FEE are happy to present the Essential series, five free ebooks collecting the key works of five great freedom philosophers: Leonard Read, Ludwig von Mises, Henry Hazlitt, F.A. Hayek, and Frédéric Bastiat. In each of these compact anthologies, you will find a powerful case for liberty. The ideas within are not mere fodder for debate. Like all great sages, these authors offer true wisdom that can inspire and benefit you personally in your own life. Here is a discussion of just a few of the included works.
