Notes

First German-language edition, first printing, of Hayek's classic polemic against centralization and collectivism, among the most influential and popular expositions of classical liberalism and libertarianism, and "far and away the most eloquent and straightforward statement of his political and economic outlook that he ever achieved" (ODNB). The economist Wilhelm Röpke (1899-1966) edited and introduced the work; Röpke was later president of the free-market Mont Pelerin Society from 1961 to 1962, but resigned due to a quarrel with Hayek. His wife Eva translated the work into Hayek's native German.
