It’s official — the U. of Chicago Press is SOLD OUT of copies of Hayek’s The Road to Serfdom

UPDATE — Evidently Amazon got a rush shipment of the new Road to Serfdom press run — the book is back in stock at Amazon.

I just got off the phone with Stephanie Hlywak of the U. of Chicago Press and it’s official — the U. of Chicago Press is SOLD OUT of copies of Friedrich Hayek’s classic The Road to Serfdom after selling over 13,000 copies in less than 24 hours, after the broadcast of Glenn Beck’s show on Hayek and his timeless book.

Stephanie will be sending me a U. of Chicago Press statement providing further details later today.

UPDATE — from Stephenie Hlywak via email:

After Glenn Beck’s recommendation, the demand for [The Road to Serfdom] has exceeded our current inventory. A large reprint is due early next week and the availability dates on the retail web sites will change. This is an unusual circumstance for the Press but The Road to Serfdom is a perennial best seller for us so there is no danger of this book being out of stock for long. The book is selling very strongly on Amazon’s Kindle e-book site where it will never go out of stock. It’s safe to say, though, that we have sold roughly a half-a-year’s worth of copies in the last two days.

You heard it here first. Friedrich Hayek stimulates the Obama economy.

UPDATE: Welcome Instapundit readers — you might also enjoy the Salma Hayek vs Friedrich Hayek video challenge.

UPDATE 2: Jeff Tucker tells me you can still get copies of Hayek’s Road to Serfdom at the Mises Store.

    Available on Amazon as a Kindle download as well

    I bought a kindle version and downloaded it to my iPad while I was watching Glenn Beck. I’m still working on the history of World War I, but the road to surfdom is next in my reading lineup.

    Great news! I think Gleen Beck should endorse one small book every month, and here’s a couple —

    “Capitalism: The Unknown Ideal” Ayn Rand

    “What Has Government Done to Our Money?” Murray Rothbard

    And the only problem with Beck’s books is that I can read them faster than he can write them.

    And of course the audiobook download is not only available on Audible, but you can use their special 15% off discount on it and get it even cheaper. (It was the first book on the page on their sale page last night.)

    But Audible = Amazon, so that’s not surprising. :)

    How About The Open Society and Its Enemies by Karl Popper? In part how Plato turned Socrates into an advocate for a totalitarian society (Socrates, like Jesus, never wrote anything he said down ).
