"This penetrating and thoughtful work confronts the challenges, conflicts, and opportunities in the fragile coalitions that compose the welfare rights movement today. Written with fidelity to the cause and an empirical eye, Ernst demonstrates how the false construction of a 'post-racial' America warps the discourse and activities of welfare rights organizers. A passionately written text that brings these women and this movement to life, The Price of Progressive Politics analyzes the welfare rights movement from within and without using the intersectional lens of race, ethnicity, and class. This timely, fascinating, and intricate book moves forward our understanding of colorblindness and intersectionality."
-Andrea Y. Simpson, author of "The Tie That Binds: Identity and Political Attitudes in the Post-Civil Rights Generation"
"In this important and courageous book, Rose Ernst shows how the discourse of colorblindness limits the progressive possibilities of the welfare rights movement. One must know the monster one is fighting if one wishes to slay it 'for real.' Otherwise, as Ernst's data demonstrates, one ends up feeding the monster. Bravo for a job well done!"
-Eduardo Bonilla-Silva, author of "Racism without Racists: Color-BlindRacism and the Persistence of Racial Inequality in America"
"Ernst has provided an amazing window into contemporary welfare organizing and the challenges faced in a political context that urges unitary rather than intersectional frames of social justice. Without a doubt she has provided an important book relevant to scholars and welfare organizers alike."
-Ange-Marie Hancock, author of "The Politics of Disgust and the Public Identity of the 'Welfare Queen'"
"Rose Ernst's book is well-written, with a nuanced theoretical frame that grows out of the relevant literature; it provides an important empirical contribution based poignantly on the voices of the women activists themselves."
-Sanford Schram, author of "Welfare Discipline: Discourse, Governance and Globalization"
-D. R. Imig, "Choice Magazine"

Moving on to human rights in general, Rothbard makes a compelling case for human rights as property rights, revisiting the famous question as to whether one has the right to shout 'fire' in a crowded cinema.
The book also contains an excellent analysis of the nature of the state and its inner contradictions. Here, Rothbard reminds us how difficult it is to frame a definition of robbery that does not also include taxation.
In conclusion, he presents us with a useful review of some other modern theories of liberty, among them the ideas of Hayek, Nozick and Berlin.
Rothbard's writing is always lively, challenging and provocative and if liberty means anything to you, then this is a book that you will not find easy to put down.
If you want to read something good by Rothbard, I would strongly recommend his earlier works and not this.
