This is a pretty disappointing piece of work. The author cites his predecessors Rothbard and von Mises much too frequently and makes only a minimal personal contribution to the arguments being presented. His "theory" about the nature of democracy and monarchy is probably the dumbest political model I've ever encountered. Also, large sections of the book have been copied word by word from one chapter to another, so on several occasions you find yourself reading the same thing all over again. Avoid this one.
