I recommend this article for my readers who are interested in exploring alternative social institutions and the libertarian perspective on the law. His work against 'intellectual property' is also very good and what he is best known for.
The only drawbacks of Kinsella's article, in my opinion, is the reductionist moral-legal theory that everything comes back to property rights and self-ownership, that is common in libertarian writings. I see this approach as inappropriate and inadequate to deal with important social issues such as family law and economic torts (e.g. defamation). I believe the natural law/common law tradition is richer and better than some libertarians give it credit for.
