I thought I knew Rothbard's opus, but I never heard of a book by that title. I'll have to look it up.
I'll confess that I'm sometimes uneasy with MR's polemic style. I have the same problem with Ayn Rand, btw. But I've learned to discount the rhetoric and extract the meat. And Rothbard purveys very wholesome meat IMO, even given the occasional rotten joint.
