    Independent Institute 2011; US$ 15.00

    Debunking numerous myths that have emerged about the world?s resources of oil, this book argues that the use of U.S. military power to secure oil is not only needless and costly?in both lives and money?but also counterproductive to U.S. security. Intended to make government, the media, and citizens think more rationally about oil and the use of military... more...

    A great supplemental text for the teaching of economics, this book offers a clear perspective and a passion for a deeper understanding of the subject.

  • Re-Thinking Greenby Robert Higgs; Carl P. Close

    Independent Institute 2005; US$ 12.99

    Environmental quality has been a major public concern since the first Earth Day in 1970, yet the maze of environmental laws and regulations enacted since then has fostered huge government bureaucracies better known for waste and failure than for innovation and success. Can we do better than this failed environmental bureaucracy? The noted contributors... more...

    Independent Institute 2007; US$ 12.99

    Broken into four sections, this book illustrates the history of American foreign policy and demonstrates the current applicability of a non-interventionist model.

  • Crisis and Leviathanby Robert Higgs; Arthur A. Ekirch

    Independent Institute 2013; US$ 14.99
