The Road to Serfdom

Full Name
The Road to Serfdom: Text and Documents

An unimpeachable classic work in political philosophy, intellectual and cultural history and economics, The Road to Serfdom has inspired and infuriated politicians, scholars, and general readers for half a century. This book was seen as heretical for its passionate warning against the dangers of state control over the means of production.

"In my opinion it is a grand book. . . . Morally and philosophically I find myself in agreement with virtually the whole of it: and not only in agreement with it, but in deeply moved agreement."

— John Maynard Keynes

"A version of a recognized classic text that provides a full and rich context from which to understand its emergence and eventual powerful impact on the course of events and ideas in the twentieth century. . . . The University of Chicago Press and Bruce Caldwell have done an excellent job in dressing up this classic book for both the general reader and scholars in a variety of disciplines and the hiostory of ideas."

— Steven Horwitz, EH.Net 

"It takes courage, or something like it, to declare one's offering 'The Definitive Edition'. . . . I have no hesitation, though in describing this as an excellent edition."

— Roger Kimball, New Criterion
