Supposedly allows examination without preaching. Some very good overview and summary information. "Among the Handbook's chapters are those from critics who write about what they believe libertarians get right as well as others from leading libertarian theorists who identify what they think libertarians get wrong."

Of course, laissez-faire private property gives to owners greater economic freedom to use, consume, transfer, and dispose of their holdings than more qualified property rights do. But this is trivial; it’s simply what laissez faire means. Laissez-faire rights and liberties do not mean that everyone’s liberty or freedom, in anything but this purely formal sense, is on the whole increased, maximized, or better realized. Depending on the distribution of property, and especially in a grossly unequal society where many reject laissez-faire property norms, all that really may be increased is the sum total of interference with and coercion required to enforce the laissez-faire property system against those who oppose it.
