Thanks to Patrick Krey for a wide-ranging review of Free is Beautiful at The New Amercan.
His article is a neat digest of why liberty and Catholicism are so closely allied. This excerpt is from his conclusion:
Though many libertarian writers fall into the habit of writing lengthy, academic-sounding essays that overwhelm the reader and lose their interest, England avoids any such traps by presenting his positions in simple, easily digested segments that walk the reader through how a libertarian society would work. England’s experience as a litigator, who has to persuade a jury, has served him well and is evidenced in his writing. This book would be a great asset in efforts to convert Christians to the cause of liberty.
