To the Socialists of All PartiesFirst US edition, first printing, of Hayek's classic polemic against centralization and collectivism, among the most influential and popular expositions of classical liberalism and libertarianism ever published, and "far and away the most eloquent and straightforward statement of his political and economic outlook that Hayek ever achieved" (ODNB).
Though in the short term the book failed to halt the rapid extension of government power into economic life, over the next few decades the book inspired countless proponents of economic liberty, became a foundation of the revival of liberal economics, and at last triumphed in the Thatcher and Reagan projects. The book was first published in London in March that year, this US edition following in September.
Octavo. Original blue cloth, spine lettered in gilt with chain design continuing vertically in gilt, top edge red.
Spine lightly sunned, minor wear at extremities, a little rubbed and soiled with ring-stain to rear cover, contents clean without marking. A very good copy.
