‘Islam and the Discovery of Freedom••• by Rose Wilder Lane, with an Introduction and Commentary by Imad-ad-Dean Ahmad, Ph.D.
‘… the Minaret of Freedom’s internationally known scholar on Islam and politics provides scriptural and historical documentation to a leading American libertarian writer’s brilliant insight into the role of the classical Islamic civilization in establishing liberty and human rights. This highly readable book is a "must-have" for anyone interested in what Islam teaches about political, social and economic order.

We find interesting parallels to these views in the contemporaneous and preceding Islamic tradition. We call for an extension of Rothbard's work to the Islamic contemporaries and predecessors of the Christian scholars that he studied.
