Chris Tame (1949-2006) was the Founder and Director of the Libertarian Alliance, and was the most prominent British libertarian of his age.

The works listed in this bibliography focus on health care and medical policy, although it is obviously impossible to sever this area completely from the broader issues of welfare and social policy.

The general perspective is that of classical liberalism, libertarianism and scientific economics - positions that see free markets and market mechanisms as efficient, optimal and moral. In its weakest form, so to speak, the approach embodied in works listed herein sees the reality of scarcity, and hence of economic rationing, choice and competition as inescapably the basis of both rational analysis and policy formation.

However, the works in this bibliography contain a variety of specific views and policy proscriptions and it should not be assumed that they are all in agreement with each other. Authors differ in the extent of their commitment to either market mechanisms or to the ethical individualism of classical liberalism, or libertarianism as it is now called.

(Preface by Professor David Gladstone)
