Product description

Review

Number 9 on the "National Review"'s list of the top 100 books of the twentieth century





--National Review

"One of the great political works of our time . . . . The twentieth-century successor to John Stuart Mill's essay, 'On Liberty.'"

--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."

--New York Times Book Review

"In an age when many on the right are worried that the Obama administration's reform of health care is leading us toward socialism, Hayek's warnings from the mid-twentieth century about society's slide toward despotism, and his principled defense of a minimal state, have found strong political resonance. . . . The notes [to this edition] make clear the extraordinary breadth and depth of Hayek's erudition and his ability to wander far beyond economics into history, philosophy, biology, and other fields."

--Francis Fukuyama "New York Times Book Review "
