I am delighted to report that Charles Hamilton is back–and so is Free Life Editions! The breadth of his scholarly work has always been impressive as has been his devotion to making important libertarian works available. Free Life Editions, which was begun by Hamilton in 1973 in New York City, went into hiatus when he accepted editorial and writing assignments for Liberty Fund and then branched out into philanthropic endeavors. But he is back with “Radical Portraits: Seeking Liberty,” which is a collection of updated essays he has written over the years.
The book looks at some of the famous and not-so-famous advocates of America’s classical liberal, non-authoritarian Right political philosophy. These include Benjamin R. Tucker, Fraz Oppenheimer, Frank Chodorov and Albert Jay Nock, among others. I am particularly happy to discover his essay on the contributions of the little-known but wonderful Valerio Isca. The second section of “Radical Portraits” is devoted to the many radical periodicals that have been published in America.
It is available for $19,95 plus shipping from Mr. Hamilton at 1301 N. Tamiami Trail, Sarasota, Florida 34236.
