Translated into 100 languages, winner of the National Book Award, and named one of the 100 Most Influential Books since World War II by the Times Literary Supplement , Anarchy, State and Utopia remains one of the most theoretically trenchant and philosophically rich defences of economic liberalism to date, as well as a foundational text in classical libertarian thought.
