Cambridge University Press in November published a book by Gary Chartier, Business Ethics Professor and Associate Dean of the Zapara School of Business, titled Anarchy and Legal Order: Law and Politics for a Stateless Society. The book elaborates and defends the idea of law without the state. The book presents a vision of peaceful, voluntary cooperation as a social ideal. It proposes an understanding of how law enforcement in a stateless society could be legitimate and what the optimal substance of law without the state might be. The book further suggests ways in which a stateless legal order could foster the growth of a culture of freedom.
In September, Chartier gave a workshop on his book at the Arizona Center for the Philosophy of Freedom at the University of Arizona.
