The Road to Serfdom by Friedrich A. Hayek

PDF, EPUB, MOBI, TXT, DOC The Road to Serfdom A classic work in political philosophy intellectual and cultural history and economics i The Road to Serfdom i has inspired and infuriated politicians scholars and general readers for half a century Originally published in England in the spring of when Eleanor Roosevelt supported the efforts of Stalin and Albert Einstein subscribed lock stock and barrel to the socialist program i The Road to Serfdom i was seen as heretical for its passionate warning against the dangers of state control over the means of production For F A Hayek the collectivist idea of empowering government with increasing economic control would inevitably lead not to a utopia but to the horrors of nazi Germany and fascist Italy .

First published by the University of Chicago Press on September i The Road to Serfdom i garnered immediate attention from the public politicians and scholars alike The first printing of copies was exhausted instantly and within six months more than were sold In April of i Reader s Digest i published a condensed version of the book and soon thereafter the Book of the Month Club distributed this condensation to more than readers A perennial best seller the book has sold over a quarter of a million copies in the United States not including the British edition or the nearly twenty translations into such languages as German French Dutch Swedish and Japanese and not to mention the many underground editions produced in Eastern Europe before the fall of the iron curtain .
