The political thought of Karl Popper by Jeremy Shearmur ( )
17 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and Italian and held by 1,400 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Jeremy Shearmur draws upon archival data to introduce Popper's political ideas by way of a discussion of their development. He goes on to present a critical survey of some of the themes from Popper's The Open Society and its Enemies and The Poverty of Historicism, along with a discussion of the political significance of some of his later philosophical ideas. The book then draws on wider themes within Popper's philosophy to offer striking critical re-interpretations of his ethical ideas, and of his social theory, and concludes with an extended discussion that suggests Popper's views should have been closer to classical liberalism than they were
Hayek and after : Hayekian liberalism as a research programme by Jeremy Shearmur ( Book )
12 editions published between 1996 and 2003 in English and held by 463 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The book will appeal to anyone with an interest in Hayek's work and to those concerned with twentieth century intellectual history. It offers a distinctive interpretation of his views and a particularly wide-ranging survey of what in the author's view now needs to be done in the pursuit of a Hayekian approach to classical liberalism

The morals of markets and related essays by H. B Acton ( Book )
4 editions published between 1993 and 2000 in English and held by 299 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Morals of Markets offers a philosophically and historically informed defense of a market-based form of social organization. Acton discusses the profit motive, competition, monopoly, the supposed impersonality of the marketplace, the assumed chaos of markets, self-interest, egalitarianism, central planning, and distributive justice. For all their high moral tone, Acton concludes the criticisms leveled and the political platforms proffered against free markets are full of contradictions and unanalyzed assumptions. A particular strength of Acton's book is that he is himself something of a moral traditionalist
