The Constitution of Liberty Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"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.

Synopsis:

The Constitution of Liberty is a thorough exposition of social philosophy which ranges from ethics and anthropology through jurisprudence and the history of ideas to the economics of the modern welfare state.

Description:

Bibliographical references included in "Acknowledgments and notes" (p. 415-531).
