The Road to Serfdom
F. A. Hayek
This classic work in political philosophy, intellectual and cultural history, and economics explores the dangers of state control over the means of production. Originally published in 1944, The Road to Serfdom inspired and infuriated politicians and intellectuals. For author F. A. Hayek, empowering the government with increasing economic control would lead not to utopia but to the horrors of Nazi Germany and Fascist Italy. A perennial bestseller, the book has sold 400,000 copies in the US and has been translated into over twenty languages. This new edition includes a foreword, standardization of references, and helpful explanatory notes.
