From Library Journal
Edited by Caldwell (economics, Univ. of North Carolina), this collection of papers by Hayek, the 1991 Nobel laureate in economics, critiques socialism and state planning in the 1930s and 1940s. Hayek is best known for his popularly written 1944 attack on socialism, The Road to Serfdom. His writings in this volume are fuller and more technical arguments against socialism and state planning, even in wartime, because he considered them inimical to a free society; Hayek also offers a vigorous defense of the free market as the bulwark of both economic and political freedom. His extended, lucidly written introduction (in contrast to his dense style) deals with the debate during the late 19th and early 20th centuries on the merits of socialism. Recommended for academic libraries with large collections in economics.?Harry Frumerman, formerly with Hunter Coll., New York

We owe much thanks to Bruce Caldwell for keeping Hayek's work in publication and accessible. This being said, the most important essays here were already available in IEO. Few of us really need both SAW and IEO, but we few who do appreciate his efforts.
