Thanks to long hours and lots of careful attention to detail on the part of my colleagues in this effort, the Lamp of Liberty (www.misbahalhurriyya.org) now has a new look, greatly improved features, and a lot more content (with even more in the pipeline). The plan is to launch an internet advertising campaign for the site this week. (The author’s list, including my own humble contributions, is growing.)
The effort is part of a wider outreach to the Arab world and the people and cultures of the middle east. We just received the first draf of a translation of Johan Norberg’s In Defense of Global Capitalism and quite other books are in the works.

What is the biggest stumbling block a site like the Lamp of Liberty faces in gaining readership in the Arab world? I’m thinking more in terms of ideas which are challenging, than technological or financial challenges.
The defence of glaobal capitalism book being translated in Arabic is a noteworthy accomplishent. The book was one of the first I picked up that truly changed my thinking, and I aplaud you Mr. Palmer for you continuing efforts in the fight for global freedoms.
I agree with Joshua. It wasn’t the first book I picked up, but it really helped to clarify things. It’s hard to disagree with a book that’s so reasonable and so ready to compare evidence.
