David Boaz

David Boaz, the executive vice president of the Cato Institute, has played a key role in the growth of the libertarian movement. He is the author of "The Libertarian Mind: A Manifesto for Freedom" and editor of "The Libertarian Reader."

The earlier edition of "The Libertarian Mind," titled "Libertarianism: A Primer," was described by the Los Angeles Times as "a well-researched manifesto of libertarian ideas" and by Richard Epstein as "unit[ing] history, philosophy, economics and law--spiced with just the right anecdotes--to bring alive a vital tradition of American political thought." His other books include "The Politics of Freedom," the "Cato Handbook For Policymakers," "Liberating Schools," and "The Crisis in Drug Prohibition." His articles have been published in the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Los Angeles Times, National Review, Slate, and the Encyclopedia Britannica.

He is a frequent guest on national television and radio shows and a popular speaker on college campuses and at corporate and community events.
