Robert Nozick must be an economic libertarian (in the  tradition of Mises
and Hayek). I never thought of him as being an anarchist in the leftist
libertarian sense, but there is a logical connection, of course..

Kimlika's (pro ?)  book _Contemporary Political Theory_ compares the
libertarianism of Nozick with the liberalism of  John Rawl, and their
concepts of disributive justice in a capitalist society. He touches upon
Marxian notions of justice as well  A very good intro to the philosophical
debate on  social equality.
