Rothbard and DiLorenzo

Email Print

Please take the time to refresh your memory and understanding of the crucial historical background causes of the Civil War by reading these outstanding essays by Murray N. Rothbard (Slavery and War and Just War) and Thomas DiLorenzo (The Cause of the Civil War: Historian Thomas Fleming Discovers the “Yankee Problem in America”).  In their brevity and concise analysis they provide an exceptional scholarly summation of the roots of America’s greatest internal crisis and its tragic consequences that have reached out to this very day – the death of the decentralized constitutional republic and the rise of the consolidationist national empire of the warfare-welfare State.
