This chapter outlines the subsequent chapters of Education in the Marketplace and the significance of a historical examination of pro-market libertarian ideas on education. The chapter ends with a brief history of public education in the United States up to the twentieth century, with emphasis on how the state has expanded its role in ways libertarians wished to counteract.
