HAYEK, Friedrich August von.
The Road to Serfdom.
London: George Routledge & Sons Ltd, 1944. London: George Routledge & Sons Ltd,, 1944. A seminal defence of human liberty Octavo. Original black cloth, spine lettered in gilt. Extremities a little bumped, small white mark to rear cover, spine a little sunned, still an excellent copy without wear, joints and hinges intact, contents clean and unmarked. First edition, first impression, of Hayek's classic polemic against centralization and collectivism, "far and away the most eloquent and straightforward statement of his political and economic outlook that Hayek ever achieved" (ODNB). Though in the short term the book failed to halt the rapid extension of government power into economic life, over the next few decades the book inspired countless proponents of economic liberty, became a foundation of the revival of liberal economics, and at last triumphed in the Thatcher and Reagan projects. Cody & Ostrem B-6.
Bookseller: Peter Harrington. ABA/ ILAB. [London, United Kingdom]
