'Readers of Richard Storey's The Uniqueness of Western Law won't like his book -- they will either love it or loathe it! Almost every page of this book challenges the creeds of current liberal orthodoxies (its subtitle is "A Reactionary Manifesto") and does so in a concise and scholarly yet very readable, fashion. Storey's approach to his topic is one that many readers will never have considered before and therein lies one, but not the only one, of its particular virtues. Read this book and prepare to be either exhilarated, encouraged and fascinated or disturbed, angered and provoked. Either way, you won't be bored!'-- Gerard Casey, MA, LL.M., Ph.D., D.Litt., Professor Emeritus, University College Dublin, and author of Freedom's Progress? A History of Political Thought'All too many libertarians misconstrue the philosophy they are explaining. Not Richard Storey. He correctly states that libertarianism is solely a theory of just law. This chapter alone is worth the entire cost of admission. As a contrarian myself, I take my hat off to this author for his fearlessness and bravery.'-- Walter E. Block, Ph.D., Harold E. Wirth Eminent Scholar Endowed Chair and Professor of Economics, Loyola University New Orleans'With its wide-ranging, yet easy to follow arguments, Richard Storey's Manifesto makes a compelling case for a conscientious libertarianism, rooted in the basic idea of the Western philosophical and Christian tradition, viz. that there is a freedom-promoting principle of order ("a natural law") of the world. It is a law that reveals itself in that most specifically human activity: raising and answering questions, arguing with each other, appealing to one another's conscience of our common humanity. Elucidating the real-world conditions that enable this conscientious search for order at all levels of human coexistence, Storey effectively destroys the caricature of libertarianism as "globalist market fundamentalism" that became prominent in the Cold War era.'-- Frank van Dun, Ph.D., Dr.Jur., Senior lecturer Philosophy of Law at the University of Ghent
