A classic work in political philosophy, intellectual history and economics, The Road to Serfdom has inspired and infuriated politicians and scholars for half a century. Originally published in 1944, it was seen as heretical for its passionate warning against the dangers of state control over the means of production. For Hayek, the collectivist idea of empowering government with increasing economic control would lead not to a utopia but to the horrors of Nazi Germany and Fascist Italy. This new edition includes a foreword by series editor and leading Hayek scholar Bruce Caldwell explaining the book's origins and publishing history and assessing common misinterpretations of Hayek's thought. Caldwell has also standardized and corrected Hayek's references and added helpful new explanatory notes. Supplemented with an appendix of related materials and forewords to earlier editions by the likes of Milton Friedman, and Hayek himself, this new edition of The Road to Serfdom will be the definitive version of Friedrich Hayek's enduring masterwork.

Hayek gives the main arguments for the free-market case and presents his manifesto on the "errors of socialism." Hayek argues that socialism has, from its origins, been mistaken on factual, and even on logical, grounds and that its repeated failures in the many different practical applications of socialist ideas that this century has witnessed were the direct outcome of these errors. He labels as the "fatal conceit" the idea that "man is able to shape the world around him according to his wishes." "The achievement of The Fatal Conceit is that it freshly shows why socialism must be refuted rather than merely dismissed—then refutes it again."—David R. Henderson, Fortune. "Fascinating. . . . The energy and precision with which Mr. Hayek sweeps away his opposition is impressive."—Edward H. Crane, Wall Street Journal F. A. Hayek is considered a pioneer in monetary theory, the preeminent proponent of the libertarian philosophy, and the ideological mentor of the Reagan and Thatcher "revolutions."

This fourth volume examines his time in Vienna and Chicago (1931-1950), when Hayek held the prestigious University of London Tooke Professorship of Economic Science and Statistics. Between Vienna and Chicago (1931-1950), although his business cycle work was apparently defeated, this study takes a closer look at Hayek's successes.

F. A. Hayek, best known for reviving the ideas of classical liberalism, was also a prominent scholar of the philosopher John Stuart Mill. Hayek is even credited with beginning a new era of Mill scholarship. One of Hayek's greatest undertakings was his collecting and editing of Mill's correspondence with his wife, Harriet Taylor-Mill. The correspondence that first appeared in Hayek's 1951 collection soon became essential reading for any reexamination of the foundation of liberalism, the sources of Mill's radicalism, and the influence of Mill's good friend and wife. Volume 16 of The Collected Works of F. A. Hayek showcases the fascinating intersection of two prominent thinkers from two successive centuries. In Hayek on Mill: The Mill-Taylor Friendship and Related Writings, we see how Hayek situated Mill within the complicated social and intellectual milieu of nineteenth-century Europe and within the mid-twentieth-century debates on socialism and planning. Part One of the volume republishes Hayek's own collection, John Stuart Mill and Harriet Taylor: Their Friendship and Subsequent Marriage, which traces the narrative of Mill's intellectual development alongside the fascinating intellectual love story of Mill and his wife. Part Two presents in chronological order Hayek's essays and correspondence related to Mill and Taylor. These materials engagingly reveal Hayek's early interest in Mill, specifically, Hayek's fascination with the influence of Harriet Taylor-Mill and Gustave D'Eichthal on Mill, in Mill's methodology and his shifting position on socialism, and in Mill's Political Economy. Also included are various reviews and introductions to Mill's works that in large measure owe their publication to Hayek's fascinating collection.

It has been made available under a Creative Commons Attribution-Non Commercial-No Derivatives 3.0 license and is part of the OAPEN-UK research project. This book considers the relationship between Hayek and Mill, taking issues with Hayek’s criticism of Mill and providing a broader perspective of the liberal tradition. Featuring contributions from the likes of Ross Emmett, Leon Montes and Robert Garnett, these chapters ask whether Hayek had an accurate reading of the ideas of Mill and Smith, as well as considering themes such as sympathy and analytical egalitarianism that play a large part in the liberal tradition, but less in work of Hayek These chapters argue that addition of these key ideas to the Hayekian corpus leads to a far broader understanding of the liberal tradition than that provided by Hayek
