Hayek and the New Right

Brittan, Samuel. “Hayek and the New Right.” Encounter 54 (January 1980): 30–46.


“Since the publication of his Road to Serfdom in 1944, Hayek has been cursed by sneerers, who dismiss everything he has to say without giving it a hearing, and even more by admirers, who agree with it before they have studied it, and regard it mainly as a highbrow stick with which to beat the Left. Yet there are many reasons for trying to come to terms with what he has been saying.”
