Book - "Introduction to the Libertarian Party," by Wes Benedict, former Executive Director
Many books describe libertarianism, but very few promote the Libertarian Party! Introduction to the Libertarian Party includes plenty of information about the structure, history, and activities of the Libertarian Party. Written by Wes Benedict, former executive director of both the Libertarian Party of Texas and the Libertarian National Committee. Benedict gives a plainspoken and realistic assessment of the current standing of the Libertarian Party, along with suggestions for how libertarians can become valuable Libertarian Party activists.
