Overview

Fifty years ago, Ludwig von Mises shocked the economics profession and elite opinion with a massive, revolutionary treatise on economics, the culmination of his life's work. It was (and remains) the most comprehensive, systematic, forthright, and powerful defense of the economics of liberty ever written.

This Scholar's Edition is the original, unaltered treatise that shaped a generation of Austrians and made possible the intellectual movement that is leading the global charge for free markets. Made available for the first time in decades, exclusively through the Ludwig von Mises Institute, this edition is superior to the others (one later edition was thoroughly botched, while another introduces ambiguities and diversions).

Using extraordinary materials and the best of modern technology, combined with ancient standards of craftsmanship in the tradition of Oxford University's Clarendon Press, this magnificent work is produced for the ages. It includes the 1954 index prepared under Mises's supervision, and is protected by a strong slipcase from the famous Old Dominion company.

All told, The Scholar's Edition looks exactly like the classic work it is, ready for a lifetime (or two) of use. The index, first produced in 1953 as a separate publication, is the most complete ever published and is united here with the orginal edition for the first time. The introduction, by Hans-Hermann Hoppe, Jeffrey Herbener, and Joseph Salerno-based on newly discovered archives-tells of the tragic and glorious history of this seminal work, and of its bright future as the manifesto of liberty.

Human Action: The Scholar's Edition is the foundation of every library of freedom.
