Hayek Rev Austrian Econ (2007) 20:91–94 DOI 10.1007/s11138-006-0005-x BOOK REVIEW Review of Ronald Hamowy, The political sociology of freedom: Adam Ferguson and F.A. Hayek New thinking in political economy series, Edward Elgar. Cheltenham, UK, 2005, 265 pp. Daniel B. Klein Published online: 18 January 2007 C Springer Science + Business Media, LLC 2007 This volume collects 10 of Ronald Hamowy’s previously published papers. Each article appears in its originally published images. Roughly half of the papers deal with the Scottish enlightenment, and half with Hayek. Thus, the book explores two ends of the doctrine of spontaneous order, but does not form an integrated whole. The essays offer great value to anyone interested in the Scots or Hayek. Hamowy is learned, insightful, and eloquent. In my opinion, the reader may put great trust in his judgment. The essays on the Scots Hamowy’s essays on the Scots focus on David Hume, Adam Smith, and especially Adam Ferguson, and mention Francis Hutchison, Lord Kames, Gilbert Stuart, Thomas Reid, John Millar, and Dugald Stewart. The main theme is that the Scot’s adumbrated the idea that good results and institutions often come from a skein of actions and experiments that had aimed elsewhere.
