Volume 13 in the "Major Conservative and Libertarian thinkers" series focuses on F.A. Hayek, the influential member of the Austrian School of Economics. Hayek (1899-1992), winner of the Nobel Prize in economics, was an influential 20th century economist and political philosopher. Preferring to be identified as what Edmund Burke called an "Old Whig", amongst his most important contributions are his writings on capital theory and the business cycle, as well as his political theory works, The Constitution of Liberty and Law, Legislation and Liberty, in both of which he defended the idea of limited government. "Major Conservative and Libertarian Thinkers" provides comprehensive accounts of the works of seminal conservative and libertarian thinkers from a variety of periods, disciplines, and traditions - the first series of its kind. Even the selection of thinkers adds another aspect to conservative thinking, including not only theorists but also writers and practitioners. The series comprises twenty volumes, each including an intellectual biography, historical context, critical exposition of the thinker's work, reception and influence, contemporary relevance, bibliography including references to electronic resources, and an index.
