Send in the Waco Killers
by Vin Suprynowicz
No one better combines passion and reason in the cause of liberty than syndicated columnist Vin Suprynowicz. This book beautifully weaves his old columns with new material for powerful view of America -- as it is becoming and as it ought to be, instead.

The Ultimate Resource 2
by Julian Simon
Debunking envirohysteria and more. This book places very high on the Random House/Modern Library readers' poll of the best books of the twentieth century.

Dumbing Us Down
by John Taylor Gatto
I'm long overdue to add this book to the store. One of America's finest and most eloquent teachers rips apart the very concept of compulsory education. Do government schools educate, or do they destroy humanity, creativity and individuality?

Your Money or Your Life
by Sheldon Richman
Oh, those people who want to "reform" the IRS (as if you could reform evil itself!). Oh, those people who want to replace income confiscation with a "fair tax." They should read this book. Let's abolish the income tax and replace it with...FREEDOM.

Evolution's End
by Joseph Chilton Pearce
Are we destroying the potential of the human race through television, man-made birthing methods and other modern "advantages"? Pearce makes provocative arguments

Parliament of Whores
by P.J. O'Rourke
Political humor at its best.

The Redneck Manifesto
by Jim Goad
It's rowdy. It's wild. It's written in the loudest words you've ever heard in print. If you're offended by the bluntest of blunt language, pass this book by. However, if you want to read the real story of how hicks, hillbillies and ordinary working class folks have become the last group in America it's officially okay to hate, here's your book. Chapter titles include "What's So Bad About Hatemongers, Gun Nuts, and Paranoid, Tax-Resisting Extremists?" and "The View from Outside: How Rednecks Became Aliens."

Freedom in Chains: The Growth of the State and the Demise of the Citizen
by James Bovard
There is no one who chronicles the problems of our current "tyranny wannabe" better than Wall Street Journal writer, James Bovard. In this new book, he builds on the foundations he laid in 1994's Lost Rights. Bovard's message is depressing -- but impeccably researched and necessary to hear.

Ain't Nobody's Business if You Do
by Peter McWilliams
A witty masterwork on why "consensual crimes" -- punishments for sex, drugs, gambling and other volentary activities -- are the bane of modern existence.

Drug Crazy: How We Got Into This Mess & How We Can Get Out
by Mike Gray
With fury and facts, Mike Gray talks about getting rid of the Drug War (aka The War on the Bill of Rights).

The Oklahoma Bombing and the Politics of Terror
by David Hoffman
This in-depth investigation tells some truths the media doesn't want you to know about the Oklahoma City bombing. Would the U.S. government use terrorism to increase wiretapping, search and seizure, and invasive surveillance of private citizens? Is the pope Catholic? Not a book filled with wild allegations -- just meticulous research.

The Federal Siege at Ruby Ridge
by Randy and Sarah Weaver
This is the Weaver's account of the events at Ruby Ridge. One of the most powerful aspects of it is the inclusion of many word for word pages of the Congressional Subcommittee's investigation of the events, which make it pretty clear that the FBI and the US Marshals' were criminally in the wrong. If you read much of the media hype of the event, it's illuminating to read both Weavers' own stories and this sub-committee report.

Ambush at Ruby Ridge
by Alan Bock
A clear, detailed, unemotional account of the incidents at Ruby Ridge.

Every Knee Shall Bow
by Jess Walter
Jess Walter observed the Weaver trial as a mainstream journalist, and you'll see some of that mainstream influence in this book. But he also got close to many members of the Weaver family and came to see, during the trial, that injustice had been done. Of all books on the Weaver case, this is my personal favorite -- and the most passionate, well-written and detailed.

The Secret Life of Bill Clinton
by Ambrose Evans-Pritchard
I am bored silly with Clinton scandals! Nevertheless, I found this well-researched book by the British journalist to be disgustingly compelling. Amazing that with all this serious Mafia-stuff going on, the mainstream media still focuses on a cruddy little sexual dalliance and its attendent coverup. Can you spell D-I-S-T-R-A-C-T-I-O-N, boys and girls?

Davidian Massacre
by Carol Moore
Heartbreaking. What else can one say?
