A conservative British politician argues forcefully and passionately that Americans must not allow Barack Obama to take them down the road to an European Union-style social democracy. 30,000 first printing.


In World War II, American soldiers went overseas to rescue England from the Nazi menace. Now, with America threatened from within by the specter of social democracy, British politician Daniel Hannan returns the favor. The New Road to Serfdom is a must-read rallying cry for Tea Party activists, fans of Mark Levin’s Tyranny and Liberty, and anyone who has seen Hannan’s hard-hitting interviews with Hannity & Colmes, Neil Cavuto, and Glenn Beck. A former president of the Oxford Conservative Association, and a member of the EU Parliament, Hannan has the insight and experience to help America recapture its distinctive ideals and avoid turning into a socialist state.

A Prominent British Conservative Warns Americans To Stop President Obama From Leading Their Country Down The Path To European-Style Socialism.

In March 2009, British conservative Daniel Hannan became a celebrity overnight when he assailed prime minister Gordon Brown on the floor of the European Parliament. The YouTube clip went viral, leading to whirlwind appearances on FOX News and other conservative media outlets. A thoughtful and articulate spokesman for conservative ideas, Hannan is better versed in America's traditions and founding documents than many Americans are. In The New Road to Serfdom, Hannan argues forcefully and passionately that Americans must not allow Barack Obama to take them down the road to European Unionùstyle social democracy. He pleads with Americans not to abandon the founding principles that have made their country a beacon of liberty for the rest of the world.

With regard to the author: . . "Daniel Hannan and the convenient myth of fascism’s socialist roots" . . .

Many of the posaic references made by the author can be found in Hayek's book The Road To Serfdom. Any hole in the evidence alleged by leftwing critics can be filled by a familiarity Hayek's work. Hannan assumes the reader is already familiary with Hayek.

This book is a collection of essays by British Conservative MEP. Unfortunately this book is not a scholarly work and the observations and recollections are not referenced in any notations. Though I agree with many of the author's streams of consciousness on the dangers of big government and lack of democratic controls of bureaucracy this book only acts as an apologists view without providing any quantifiable facts.

Hannan's essays of the past 6 or 7 years provided a great warning, of what has transpired in Greece, Italy, Spain, and if the Economist's recent in debt report suggests, the failure in France, too.

When govt. gets too large [see Oregon], citizenry is diminshed.

This book validates the adage "don't judge a book by its cover." The title - an obvious reference to Hayek's Road to Serfdom - makes this jump off the shelf, but nothing within should come as a surprise to anyone familiar with topical events and international politics. British MP Hannan romanticizes the US and provides no novel or worthwhile observations on the current state of American politics. I had high hopes for this book but was disappointed. A flood of books on this same topic should come out soon, as the argument made (America, dying superpower, Europeanizing) is rather obvious, though misguided. Ultimately not worth reading.
