Legalize Blackmail - PDF, ePub & MOBI Versions

This new book from Professor Walter Block collects a lifetime of his schol­arly arti­cles about black­mail in which he exam­ines the legal and eco­nomic under­pin­nings of black­mail, traces its his­tor­i­cal roots, and presents a lib­er­tar­ian frame­work for think­ing about black­mail and its place in the law. Along the way, he con­fronts the the­o­ries of black­mail put for­ward by many other dis­tin­guished schol­ars, includ­ing Richard Pos­ner, Robert Noz­ick, and Richard Epstein.

Praise for Legalize Blackmail

"Professor Walter Block always makes us think, with his smack downs of conventional wisdom, and his cool libertarian logic of liberty. This important work is no exception."

Lew Rockwell, Lewrockwell.com

“Walter Block is the Grand Provocateur of libertarianism. These essays on blackmail present him at his daring, irrepressible, and inspiring best. Block starts with first principles and follows them, carefully and consistently, wherever they go – often ending with startling conclusions.”

Peter Klein, Associate Professor of Applied Social Sciences & Director of the McQuinn Center for Entrepreneurial Leadership at the University of Missouri

"You will really like this book; I certainly did. It debunks what most people think they know about blackmail, of course. But, more important, it opens up a new, but very rational, way of thinking that will be wholly new to most people. The material Walter Block covers here will serve you well, everywhere from a cocktail party to a courtroom."

Doug Casey, Founder, Casey Research

"If you want to understand the libertarian position on blackmail, read this book. If you've taken it for granted that we need laws against blackmail, Walter Block will challenge your assumptions with provocative arguments you'll find difficult to refute."

Jacob Huebert, attorney and author, Libertarianism Today
