Still causing quite a stir almost a month after Glenn Beck’s endorsement pushed it to the top of Amazon’s sales rankings, F. A. Hayek’s The Road to Serfdom was the subject of an essay by Jennifer Schuessler in the July 11st edition of the New York Times Sunday Book Review. In her essay Schuessler explores the book’s “long history of timely assists from the popular media,” and, interestingly, asks how relevant the book really is to Glenn Beck’s America.
