Lanny Ebenstein has edited a delightful collection of mostly un-anthologized essays by Milton Friedman, Brian Doherty reports. Friedman fans will enjoy what's here, scholars will appreciate having these far-flung essays gathered in one place, and those trying to understand the scope and evolution of libertarian thought since World War II will find this book illuminating. And there's another reason to read the book, though it isn't clear whether Ebenstein intended it. By arranging the essays chronologically within its two sections, the editor has presented the tale of a man whose beliefs got tougher, more comprehensive, and more libertarian with more thought and wider knowledge.
