Jacob H. Huebert is a constitutional lawyer in Chicago and the author of Libertarianism Today, a new introduction to libertarian ideas and the libertarian movement. The views expressed on this site are his own, not those of any organization.
"In Libertarianism Today, Jacob Huebert draws on his mastery of libertarian philosophy, Austrian economics, and history to show that limited government and free markets are the only cures for the numerous problems facing our nation. Huebert also provides an excellent introduction to libertarian thought and a concise summary of the history of the libertarian movement. Anyone interested in learning more about the past, present, and future of the liberty movement can benefit from reading this book."
- Congressman Ron Paul
"J.H. Huebert is a scholar who can really write. If you want an unvarnished look at the libertarian movement and care about the future of liberty, read this book."
- Llewellyn H. Rockwell, Jr., founder and chairman, Ludwig von Mises Institute
"The top book of the year."
- George C. Leef, The Freeman

"Jacob Huebert's outstanding survey of libertarianism ranks as the best work of its kind since Murray Rothbard's For a New Liberty."

"The best introduction to libertarianism on the market." - Laurence M. Vance, Freedom Daily
