Description:New. The Road to Serfdom remains one of the all-time classics...New. The Road to Serfdom remains one of the all-time classics of twentieth-century intellectual thought. For over half a century, it has inspired politicians and thinkers around the world, and has had a crucial impact on our political and cultural history. With trademark brilliance, Hayek argues convincingly that, while socialist ideals may be tempting, they cannot be accomplished except by means that few would approve of. Addressing economics, fascism, history, socialism and the Holocaust, Hayek unwraps the trappings of socialist ideology. He reveals to the world that little can result from such ideas except oppression and tyranny. Today, more than fifty years on, Hayek`s warnings are just as valid as when The Road to Serfdom was first published. Printed Pages: 265. 13 x 20 cm.

F. A. Hayek lived through and escaped from a government that became socialist and, inevitably, totalitarian. The paralells in "The Road to Serfdom", which was published in 1944, with waht is happening today in Europe and America are uncanny. The propaganda, the confusion of the meanings of words, the corruption and lies so rampant today. We need to wake up. This book is a great place to start.
I found this book fascinating but difficult to read. You really have to pay attention and not let your mind wander or you will miss the point. This is a book all freedom loving people should read if they want to retain their freedom.
