thanks for posting this. I remember reading this book are quite a few years ago, but finding it not that helpful, and quite confused in places. I know that other people do rate it, however.

I just re-read this the other day. I recommend giving it a look. Meltzer makes a good argument for circumscribing anarchism.

I agree, Steven. It's nothing amazing, but given its short length and accessible style, it might prove useful as an introduction to some people.

Well quite literally, what with all the weird little 'political compass'-type diagrams he and Christie did in Floodgates of Anarchy.
