Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0226320847, Paperback)
"One of the great political works of our time, . . . the twentieth-century successor to John Stuart Mill's essay, 'On Liberty.'"--Henry Hazlitt, Newsweek
"A reflective, often biting, commentary on the nature of our society and its dominant thought by one who is passionately opposed to the coercion of human beings by the arbitrary will of others, who puts liberty above welfare and is sanguine that greater welfare will thereby ensue."--Sidney Hook, New York Times Book Review
In this classic work Hayek restates the ideals of freedom that he believes have guided, and must continue to guide, the growth of Western civilization. Hayek's book, first published in 1960, urges us to clarify our beliefs in today's struggle of political ideologies.

Working after the war, Hayek's writing was very much against the tide of mainstream Keynesian economic thought and he struck a lonely figure on the outskirts of academia. This book is suitable for those seeking to understand ideas that have become the orthodoxy in the age of the globalised economy.
