'Having its roots thus deep in the rotten soil of ignorance and violation of economic laws, it is easy to see that the efforts of 'Good Government Clubs,' 'Municipal Reform Leagues,' and similar organizations of well-meaning citizens must fail to accomplish the ends for which they are working. So long as law-created conditions prevent the masses from acquiring intelligence or using their intelligence for useful purposes, so long will it be impossible to have clean politics.'

Bolton Hall wrote those words in 1904. This book collects more than 20 of his essays from 4 of his books: Free America, A Little Land and a Living, Who Pays Your Taxes?, and Things as They Are. A pioneer of alternative economics, Bolton Hall rubbed elbows with the radicals of his day, from Benjamin Tucker to Emma Goldman.

Unfortunately, today Bolton Hall is little-known. We are proud to offer you this collection of his writing, with an introduction by Mark Sullivan, 'Bolton Hall & The 'Third Tradition.''
