'. . . to have [all the papers in these volumes] available for selected study or reference in a single set of volumes is an editorial achievement for which all with an interest in Hayek will be grateful.' - Allen Oakley, Journal of the History of Economic Thought This major three-volume collection - offered in the centenary year of Hayek's birth - celebrates a lifetime of scholarship and original contributions that cross the disciplines of politics, philosophy and economics. Hayek rose to fame as a young technical economist engaged in debate with Keynes and became infamous in middle-age for his harsh critique of socialist planning. for much of the 1950s and 1960s Hayek was ignored as relic of 19th century economic liberalism as the tide of intellectual and political fashion moved against both his warnings about Keynesian demand management and his critique of socialist planning. Late in life, Hayek was celebrated as a prescient scholar who foresaw the decline in both the Keynesian and socialist systems of economic control.
