For the second year in a row, the Future of Freedom Foundation hosted "Restoring the Republic: Foreign Policy and Civil Liberties." These talks from June of 2008 showcase leaders from the libertarian, conservative, and liberal movements concerning civil liberties and foreign policy.
With the ever-growing debacle in Iraq, there was never a better time to come together to share ideas on restoring the limited-government, constitutional republic envisioned by our Founding Fathers. When you review our list of 21 speakers -- libertarians, liberals, and conservatives -- you will see that this one one fantastic intellectual experience that can be now be relived through this 11-volume series of CDs.
