7 HAYEK, F. A.; BARTLEY, III, W. W. (EDITOR). The Fatal Conceit: The Errors Of Socialism.
University of Chicago Press, Chicago and London: 1991. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
Hayek gives the main arguments for the free-market case and presents his manifesto on the "errors of socialism." Hayek argues that socialism has, from its origins, been mistaken on factual, and even on logical, grounds and that its repeated failures in the many different practical applications of socialist ideas that the twentieth century has witnessed were the direct outcome of these errors. He labels as the "fatal conceit" the idea that "man is able to shape the world around him according to his wishes." "The achievement of The Fatal Conceit is that it freshly shows why socialism must be refuted rather than merely dismissed—then refutes it again."—David R. Henderson, Fortune. "Fascinating. . . . The energy and precision with which Mr. Hayek sweeps away his opposition is impressive."—Edward H. Crane, Wall Street Journal F. A. Hayek is considered a pioneer in monetary theory, the preeminent proponent of the libertarian philosophy, and the ideological mentor of the Reagan and Thatcher "revolutions."

8 JOHNSON, JEFFREY A. " They Are All Red Out Here ": Socialist Politics In The Pacific Northwest 1895-1925.
University of Oklahoma Press, Norman: 2008. First Edition. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
The most successful socialists America has ever seen. One of early-twentieth-century America's most fertile grounds for political radicalism, the Pacific Northwest produced some of the most dedicated and successful socialists the country has ever seen. As a radicalized labor force emerged in mining, logging, and other extractive industries, socialists employed intensive organizational and logistical skills to become an almost permanent third party that won elections and shook the confidence of establishment rivals. At the height of Socialist Party influence just before World War I, a Montana member declared, "They are all red out here." In this first book to fully examine the development of the American Socialist Party in the Northwest, Jeffrey A. Johnson draws a sharp picture of one of the most vigorous left-wing organizations of this era. Relying on party newspapers, pamphlets, and correspondence, he allows socialists to reveal their own strategies as they pursued their agendas in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and Montana. And he explores how the party gained sizable support in Butte, Spokane, and other cities seldom associated today with left-wing radicalism. "They Are All Red Out Here" employs recent approaches to labor history by restoring rank-and-file workers and party organizers as active participants in shaping local history. The book marks a major contribution to the ongoing debate over why socialism never grew deep roots in American soil and no longer thrives here. It is a work of political and labor history that uncovers alternative social and political visions in the American West. Jeffrey A. Johnson is Assistant Professor of History at Augustana College, Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

9 ORWELL, GEORGE. The Road To Wigan Pier.
Blackstone Audiobooks, Ashland: 1992. 0786103043 / 9780786103041 s Six brand new audio cassettes. 
When Orwell went to the north of England in the 1930s to find out how industrial workers lived, he not only observed but shared their experience. He stayed in dreary lodgings - for a time he occupied the fourth bed in a small airless room - and subsisted on the scant, cheerless diet of the poor. He went down into the coal mines and walked crouching, as the miners did, from one to three miles to the coal face through a passage too low to stand up in. He watched the backbreaking, dangerous labor of men whose net pay averaged $525 a year. And he knew the unemployed - people who had been out of work for years and who had sunk beyond despair into an inhuman apathy. The first part of this book is the searing yet beautiful account of what Orwell found "on the road to Wigan Pier." In the second part he asks why Socialism, which alone in his opinion could conserve human values from the ravages of industrialism, had so little appeal. His answer was so critical of the Socialism and Socialists of his time that Victor Gollancz of the Left Book Club, under who auspices the book was written, was impelled to dispute Orwell in a foreword that has itself become famous. Read by Frederick Davidson. " ...a masterpiece. It is also a basic document in the intellectual history of this century." - Richard H. Rovere
