The following list began as a recommended reading assignment for members of Freedom First Society. But we highly recommend these books and documents to the attention of anyone. Expect to see the list grow as we add to it regularly.
Please note that the works here are presented because we believe they contribute significantly to an understanding of some aspect of the problems America faces or to an understanding of the solution and the principles of freedom.
The presence of a book here is not intended as a blanket endorsement of the author’s views. In fact, sometimes we will include works by the enemies of freedom, such as Karl Marx’s Communist Manifesto, simply because we believe that it is vital that more Americans have a better understanding of the enemy at work.
