John Zube's Bibliography on Monetary Freedom

John Zube, a German-Australian libertarian activist, is the one who has saved the idea of Panarchy from oblivion and has promoted it in the most continuous and consistent way. John's essays are listed here and he is also tirelessly compiling a comprehensive encyclopedia on free banking with plenty of information useful to all those who want to go beyond the tyranny of legal tender and state banking. 

My specific place in John Zube's Bibliography on Monetary Freedom is reproduced below with appreciation:
