The Black Book Review Sequel

Back in November, 2007, our Reviewer, Rick Spencer, published his perspective on The Black Book of Communism on this blog (click on: Spencer Review of The Black Book). He's now discovered a new review of the same book by the Mises Institute.....click on this link: Mises Review of The Black Book.

Here is Rick Spencer's comment he left today on the Mises Institute blog regarding this book:

"I reviewed this stunning book nov07 for a small military blog http://cargomasterraster.blogspot.com/ of USAF members flying the world's largest cargo plane in the 60's. It seems to be a book not publicly touted. A major reason, I believe, is that the academic/left world would have to shut the door forever on the concept of Utopia if these misdeeds were researched. The lack of such research and publicity about this evil of the 20th century is almost criminal in itself." Richard Spencer Published: January 20, 2009 3:00 PM

FYI, the Ludwig von Mises Institute in Auburn, AL, is self-described as:

The Institute is named to honor the life and work of Ludwig von Mises (1881-1973). In six decades of teaching and writing, he reconstructed economic theory and method on a sound basis of individual human action and showed that government intervention is always destructive, whether through welfare, inflation, taxation, regulation, or war. His vision of the free and prosperous commonwealth is carried forward in all the work of the Ludwig von Mises Institute.
