Notes

First edition, UK issue from US plates. "A comprehensive and systematic treatise on economics, social philosophy, and the social sciences, this was Mises' major economic treatise, his magnum opus. A survey of the science of human action, its epistemology (methodology), its theories derived by reasoning logically from a priori axioms, and their application to specific economic phenomena" (Greaves and McGee). "This book is the counterweight of Marx's 'Das Kapital', of Lord Keynes' 'General Theory', and of countless other books recommending socialization, planning, credit expansion, and similar panaceas" (jacket front flap).
