Review of Lire Bastiat: Science Sociale et Libéralisme, by Robert Leroux
Volume 14, No. 4 (Winter 2011)
In the wake of the bicentenary of his birth, Frédéric Bastiat (1801–1850), his achievements, and his legacy have been reconsidered by scholars all over the western world. At the same time, his works and the secondary literature have become widely accessible through the Internet. Robert Leroux exploits these new sources and tools with great dexterity in his Lire Bastiat (Reading Bastiat). He has written a comprehensive introduction to Bastiat’s life and works, presenting the main themes of his contributions and referring to the relevant sources (English and French) in a great number of meticulous footnotes.
