Volume 1: Rules and Order.The University of Chicago Press, Chicago , 1973 Stock Code: 118433
NotesFirst US edition of volume one, inscribed by the author, "To Mr. K. Inoue in gratitude for his efforts, F. A. Hayek, 25-11-74", together with a printed compliments slip: "With the author's compliments". Law, Legislation and Liberty was Hayek's last major work of social philosophy, published over a seven-year period, and in many ways the culmination of his philosophical career, offering his most extensive philosophical analysis of the structure of society, the nature of justice, and the underlying principles of economics. The work joins The Road to Serfdom and the Constitution of Liberty in the triumvirate of Hayek's three philosophical masterworks. For each volume the British and American editions were published apparently simultaneously, this being the American edition.
