A Tiger By The Tail
This book is unique. It is perhaps the finest introduction to the thought of a major thinker ever published in the discipline of economics. What makes it unique is the fact that it comprises selections and short excerpts from a broad range of Hayek’s works written over a span of forty years. Despite its broad coverage the book is amazingly compact and coherent, seamlessly integrating the main themes from Hayek’s writings on money, capital, business cycles, and international monetary systems. Furthermore, although it mainly uses Hayek’s own words, some from his more technical works, it has been compiled and arranged by the late Sudha Shenoy in a way that makes it comprehensible to the layperson and student but can also be read with profi t by the professional economist and teacher.
