Dry: In Defence of Economic Freedom Extended
"A person in the publishing trade from whom I sought advice with the publication of Dry: In Defence of Economic Freedom observed that it was 'A thesis not a book' and recommended that I should cut it by half. I accepted what I have no doubt was the good advice. Nevertheless, anyone wishing to use the information conveyed by Dry should not be asked in circumstances where that is unnecessary to take my word for it, and such a person might be interested in detail or argument excluded from the shortened version. Here is the draft as it was before I began to delete almost half of it. It has not been proofread, the grammar and spelling may be awry, but it is extensively footnoted."
