Rothbard's Time on the Left

The Journal of Libertarian Studies

Murray Rothbard devoted his life to the struggle for liberty, but, as anyone who has made a similar commitment realizes, it is never exactly clear how that devotion should translate into action. Consequently, Rothbard formed strategic alliances with widely different groups throughout his career. Perhaps the most intriguing of these alliances is the one Rothbard formed with the New Left in the mid-1960s, especially considering their antithetical economic views.
