The Liberty Fund has just put in their Online Library of Liberty two of Thomas Hodgskin's great works, Popular Political Economy (1827), and A Lecture on Free Trade (1843). They previously had put his An Essay on Naval Discipline (1813) and his The Natural and Artificial Right of Property Contrasted (1832).
Two of these in particular, Popular Political Economy and The Natural and Artificial Right of Property Contrasted are classics in free market anarchist literature and are examples of the purer (or radical) versions of classical liberal literature in the English language.
These are examples of some of Hodgskin's best writings, short of a few other essays and articles in The Economist.
Thank you, David Hart, for your efforts at the Liberty Fund! David has done some great work there, as well as on his own website, in presenting to the public many great insights into classical liberal history and the writings of major and lesser-known intellectuals and activists
Just a thought.
