This one is written from a Sci-Fi point of view. But the principles are still there. I consider it the top Libertarian fiction I’ve ever read. I haven’t read any non-fiction on the subject. I think this would be a good introduction (contemplate the possibilities) for someone interested in the concept, or wanting to know more.
The Probability Broach
by L. Neil Smith
Denver detective Win Bear, on the trail of a murderer, discovers much more than a killer. He accidentally stumbles upon the probability broach, a portal to a myriad of worlds--some wildly different from, others disconcertingly similar to our own. Win finds himself transported to an alternate Earth where Congress is in Colorado , everyone carries a gun, there are gorillas in the Senate, and public services are controlled by private businesses.
"Contained ideas I wish could be shouted to the world, ideas that come from the American heritage of freedom and which could bring still greater individual liberty, greater technical progress."--Vernor Vinge, author of A Deepness in the Sky
"Pick up a new copy of the book and rediscover this exciting world, and reserve me a table at Meep's Texas Barbecue."--Prometheus
