A new edition of F. A. Hayek's three-part opus Law, Legislation, and Liberty, collated in a single volume
In this critical entry in the University of Chicago's Collected Works of F. A. Hayek series, political philosopher Jeremy Shearmur collates Hayek's three-part study of law and liberty and places Hayek's writings in careful historical context. Incisive and unrestrained, Law, Legislation, and Liberty is Hayek at his late-life best, making it essential reading for understanding the philosopher's politics and worldview.

These three volumes constitute a scaling up of the framework offered in Hayek's famed The Road to Serfdom. Volume 1, Rules and Order, espouses the virtues of classical liberalism; Volume 2, The Mirage of Social Justice, examines the societal forces that undermine liberalism and, with it, liberalism's capacity to induce "spontaneous order"; and Volume 3, The Political Order of a Free People, proposes alternatives and interventions against emerging anti-liberal movements, including a rule of law that resides in stasis with personal freedom.

Shearmur's treatment of this challenging work--including an immersive new introduction, a conversion of Hayek's copious endnotes to footnotes, corrections to Hayek's references and quotations, and the provision of translations to material that Hayek cited only in languages other than English--lends it new importance and accessibility. Rendered anew for the next generations of scholars, this revision of Hayek's Law, Legislation, and Liberty is sure to become the standard.
