http://reason.com/blog/2009/12/29/best-libertarian-books-of-...I'd like to nominate one additional book [to the Best Libertarian Books of the Decade list] that deserves real attention: legal historian David Bernstein's excellent Only One Place of Redress: African Americans, Labor Regulations, & the Courts from Reconstruction to the New Deal.Bernstein meticulously documents the ways that Progressive and New Deal economic regulations, including labor laws, occupational licensing laws, and prevailing wage laws, directly harmed African Americans. In contrast, on those occasions when state and federal courts actively protected economic liberty against this state abuse, blacks were among the prime beneficiaries, a process that the New Deal takeover of the Supreme Court brought to a disastrous end._______________________________And just in case those earlier lefties hadn't done enough damage, LBJ and his Dem congress delivered the coupe de grace to lower-class black culture with their War on Poverty.--fleg
