A classic work in political philosophy, intellectual and cultural history, and economics, THE ROAD TO SERFDOM has inspired politicians, scholars, and general readers for half a century. Originally published in 1944 - when Eleanor Roosevelt supported the efforts of Stalin and Albert Einstein subscribed to the socialist program - it was seen as heretical for its warning against state control over the means of production. For Hayek, the collectivist idea of giving government more economic control led not to Utopia but to Nazi Germany and fascist Italy. Since then, it has established itself alongside the works of de Tocqueville, Mill and Orwell for its warning on the tradeoff between individual liberty and government authority.
"This book has become a true classic: essential reading for everyone who is seriously interested in politics in the broadest and least partisan sense..." (From Milton Friedman's Introduction)
