Benjamin Tucker's collection of essays, Instead of a Book by a Man Too Busy to Write One: A Fragmentary Exposition of Philosophical Anarchism, provides the best-possible sampling of his insight, analysis, and prescriptions for a political and economic system in transition. The essays and letters are drawn from Tucker's publication Liberty, which he started as a small newsletter in 1881, a time of extraordinary intellectual creativity in the US. To his amazement, Liberty grew in influence to become the most widely circulated anarchist publication of the late 19th century. It embodied an archetype: American radicalism of the finest sort.
