Tom Woods recently put together a list of recommended books, and I thought that this was a great idea for Tenthers as well. His introduction was perfect, it fits here as well:
People often ask me what books they ought to read in order to get quickly up to speed on economics, politics, and history. Here are some suggestions.
If you’re like me, you are annoyed by books that teach you three new things. My time is limited. I like books that are full of things I didn’t know, or ideas I’d never thought of.
The books I recommend below belong in that category. They teach you something new and unexpected on every page. And they are a perfect antidote to the propaganda fed to us in the ideological prison camps where most of us spent our formative years. I list them in no particular order.
Tom, thanks for the great introduction, it applies here as well! So with that, here’s my recommendation list of the top-10 books for Tenthers. I urge you to read them in the order presented. Doing so will almost act like a series of course as you work towards your “Tenther Degree!”
To start, get a great introduction to the Founder’s constitutional thought – and vision with two books. The Founding Fathers’ Guide to the Constitution by Brion McClanahan might be the definitive layman’s handbook on the Constitution. And Kevin Gutzman’s Politically Incorrect Guide to the Constitution is THE book for the layman to overcome the “received wisdom” about what constitutional law is. (more…)
