The Rise and Fall of Society This book is one of the best expositions of economics and politics ever written. It was Chodorov’s last book and the one most overlooked. It’s tragic. It’s great. It explains central economic ideas from the Austrian tradition, and offers up a highly sophisticated theory of the state and its operations. It is one of the books that cannot be overlooked.

If you were going to name the single greatest book in the social sciences from the 20th century, it would be Mises’s Human Action. Jeffrey Tucker discusses the history of how it came to be written and its main themes. Human Action is a book that you can never stop reading. No matter how many times you read it and reference it, there always seems to be more to discover. Join Jeffrey for a discussion of this book and its legacy Thursday, October 30th at 2:30pm ET!
