Currently working on

Taking Offense. An extension of the project of my recently published Liberalism Undressed. This next book is a study of what to me is the baffling but worldwide phenomenon of people (me too) who grow agitated by what other people say and (sometimes) do, even though what's done is merely offensive, not harmful. But why? And what should we do about it. My blog exploring the subject, Taking-Offense, launched in November 2015. See the link in the sidebar to the left.

Speech Matters. The final part of the liberalism project. If the presence of harm and risk of harm are the measure of a government's reach, why should we exempt speech from government control when it causes harm? Or do we? And what are the limits?
