What is freedom? How is freedom related to justice, law,
property, peace, and prosperity? Tom Palmer has spent a lifetime-as
a scholar, teacher, journalist, and activist-asking and answering
these questions. Since its publication in 2009, Realizing
Freedom has been the recipient of wide acclaim, both in the
United States and around the world. Now, this expanded edition adds
even greater depth and dimension to the book, with newly added
essays that confirm Palmer's role as one of liberty's most
articulate advocates. A tireless educator, Palmer has traveled the
world to bring the message of freedom to people on every continent.
At home, he has been an incisive commentator on current affairs as
well as an original and innovative thinker in political philosophy.
The essays in this volume are drawn from his decades of work on the
theory of justice, multiculturalism, democracy and limited
government, globalization, the law and economics of patents and
copyrights, among many other topics, and reflect the many levels on
which Palmer has promoted individual liberty.
