Although a product of the relatively "dry" subject of political theory, this is one of the very best books I have ever read. Although it was written over 150 years ago, it is incredibly relevant today. Bastiat builds a perfect argument against socialist economic policies, clearly (and in quite simple language, despite the age of the document) explaining how taking from one man and giving to another is nothing more than "legal plunder". Although this book didn't change my view of how the world works, it certainly clarified things for me. An excellent beginning point for anyone trying to get to the root of our problems today.
