free books: free history, political science, law and economics ebooks in pdf

The liberty fund publishes excellent classic works of history, economics, law and political science very inexpensively. Usually library grade hard cover and soft cover books.

They have put virtually their entire library online for free in pdf and sometimes html format.

I especially like the pdf files for convenient searching when doing research. You can find their library of economics here, but keep in mind it's not only economics - actually that's the minority. However it seems like the online library of liberty may be more accessible in for the same material.

Here's a list of their authors, many are historical giants and nobel prize winners:
