Benoît Malbranque, New and unpublished material
regarding French classical liberalism

French classical liberalism is commonly recognized as one of the greatest traditions of promoters of freedom. Yet this recognition and the help these authors provide is limited by a great number of misconceptions, which stem from the fact that, up to this day, historians and commentators have relied upon scattered and limited sources.

In this book are published a wide range of new and unpublished documents, from renown authors such as the physiocrats, Bastiat, Molinari, J.-B. Say, Yves Guyot, among other names. These writings, offered in both original French and English translation, and carefully annotated, uncover new aspects of French classical liberalism and will be of great value to scholars and lovers of liberty alike.

Shepherd Six edicts cover

Robert Perry Shepherd, Turgot and the six edicts

In this book, professor Shepherd offers a comprehensive study of the radical reforms enacted by Turgot in 1776, which aimed at establishing in France a free-market economy. At a time when the ancien régime was already falling apart, the newly appointed Minister tackled its most aberrant and archaic features by putting forward the freedom of labor, the freedom of trade, and the abolishment of economic privileges. Twenty years before the Révolution française, these bold reforms were designed to overhaul the monarchy and avoid turmoil.

The author provides the first full translation of these six edicts and thus enables the reader to make sense of this very daring project.
