review 1: This book is a wonderful compilation of short essays/articles by R. J. Rushdoony, which means that they are all somewhat disconnected from one another, but they're arranged in such a way to give a sort of consistency and flow to the book. The advantage to this layout is that this will be a tremendous reference book. The titles are descriptive, so a quick read through the table of contents will quickly lead one to a chapter of relevance. I would highly recommend this book.
review 2: This short book is an excellent primer on the relationship between law and liberty, as the title indicates. So much of the culture today believes that law is a hindrance to their liberty (or as they like to call it today, "freedom"). Unfortunately, such a view is self-destructive,
... moreas it is the law that provides the limits upon human depravity, and teaches the standard of righteousness by which men may flourish together. The Founding Fathers of our own nation wanted us to be governed by laws rather than men, because they understood the sovereign nature of law, and its Sovereign backing--even if they were not orthodox and pious Christians. less
