AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER: _The Constitution of Liberty: The Definitive Edition_

Available for pre-order and coming this fall:  F.A. Hayek’s The Constitution of Liberty:  The Definitive Edition edited by Ronald Hamowy.

What a way to honor the 50th anniversary of this scholarly masterpiece, at once both a graduate education in liberal governance and a joyous panegyric to a free society.

If truth be told, this is a much better book than The Road to Serfdom — and in many ways more influential.

Ronald Hamowy — who studied under Hayek at the U. of Chicago while Hayek produced Constitution — is a leading scholar of liberal thought, and I can’t imagine anyone in a better position to produce a scholarly edition of Hayek’s landmark book.  I frankly can’t wait to get a crack at Hamowy’s new Collected Works edition, which promises to revise, expand and extend Hayek’s truly astounding set of quotations, footnotes and historical references.  This will be a feast, and be assured I’ll be one of the first at the table.

    Greg, what is the significance of the Kelly Forceps on the cover of the Routledge Edition of The Constitution of Liberty? I can’t figure it out.

    Eric, beats me. I’ve never seen it.
