Description 

Walter Block's daring, funny, iconoclastic Defending the Undefendable is a libertarian classic. In this sequel Block defends even more of society's hidden heroes, those unfairly maligned entrepreneurs, workers, and capitalists who create value through free and voluntary interaction, and he does it in the same colorful and engaging style. (Peter G. Klein)

Walter Block has assembled thirty chapters defending behavior that is probably offensive to most Americans, such as dwarf tossing and stereotyping, and many that are downright illegal, such as dueling and smuggling. Plus, he's provided us with humorous cartoons at the end of many chapters. The bottom line message in Freedom in All Realms: Defending the Undefendable is that the true test of our commitment to personal liberty doesn't come when we permit others to engage in those peaceable, voluntary acts with which we agree. It comes when we permit others to engage in peaceable, voluntary acts we find offensive. (Walter E. Williams)

In an age when all too many people run for cover when their controversial neighbors evoke the ire of intellectual elites, Walter Block heroically comes to the rescue. You don't have to agree with him on everything to respect his thoughtfulness on behalf of the unpopular and the misunderstood. Liberty's very survival depends upon such courage! (Lawrence W. Reed)

Walter Block is the most courageous of libertarian economists. No issue is too tough for the application of solid principles-and that makes him unique. I find him to be absolutely consistent in his logic, clear enough for anyone to grasp, and bold enough to take on any and all challengers. On top of it all, he's provocative and fun to read. (Ken Schoolland)

Defending the Undefendable: Freedom in All Realms is a worthy, indispensable sequel to DTU, written in a fun, punchy, and accessible style, but with no punches pulled. (Stephan Kinsella)

Title makes me want to read it, and I love everything Dr. Block writes, but I don't buy paper books anymore. It's too expensive and too slow (I could've wait for month while post service deliver it to me from abroad). Why isn't this book in kindle store or somewhere?
