Libertarianism: For and Against offers dueling perspectives on the scope of legitimate government. Tibor R. Machan, a well-known libertarian philosopher, argues for a minimal government devoted solely to protecting individual rights to life, liberty, and property. Against this view, philosopher Craig Duncan defends democratic liberalism, which aims to ensure that all citizens have fair access to a life of dignity. In a dynamic exchange of arguments, the two philosophers cut to the heart of this important debate.

Machan -- Democratic liberalism: the politics of dignity / Craig Duncan -- The follies of democratic "liberalism" / Tibor R. Machan -- Democratic liberalism defended / Craig Duncan.
