Okay, CL fans, I need your help.
An extremely earnest and enthusiastic student just wrote to me, and asked about starting a reading group in Classical Liberalism. This student wants the movement to spread, and wants the readings to be good. And s/he also wants Progressive counterpoint.
So, let me ask the smartest people I know, the readers of KPC!
In comments, please give the BEST (most important, but also most readable) books or articles for these categories (these are my correspondent's categories, btw). And NO MORE THAN THREE per category, please. Have at you!
Classical Liberal authors of history: _____
Classical Liberal authors of the contemporary period: ____
