Israell M. Kirzner — 10 Volume Collected Works

Summary:
This month the last volume in the Collected Works of Israel M. Kirzner will be published.  It is his book Ludwig von Mises: The Man and His Economics, but it includes a comprehensive bibliography of Kirzner's works throughout his career that was expertly edited and refined by Rosolino Candela for this version.  It is fitting for Kirzner's collected works to be bookended by his dissertation written under Mises's direction at NYU -- The Economic Point of View -- and his intellectual biography of Mises which was originally published in 2001 as Kirzner officially retired from active teaching at NYU. Editing this collection was a labor of love for Frederic Sautet and me, and we are thrilled to see the corpus of Kirzner's work now easily available for new generation of students and

Editing this collection was a labor of love for Frederic Sautet and me, and we are thrilled to see the corpus of Kirzner's work now easily available for new generation of students and scholars. We are most grateful to Liberty Fund for undertaking this project.

Israel Kirzner is a scholars' scholar, and he pursued his career as a teacher and researcher with great integrity and commitment. And, with a sense of gratitude toward his teacher -- Ludwig von Mises -- but also with a scholar's dedication to critical inquiry and pursuing the truth wherever that may lead them.  Always charitable to those with whom he disagreed, Kirzner sought to be dispassionate while also engaging.  He is, in my opinion, a role model that I can only aspire to imitate with full knowledge I will fall short.

Given that Liberty Fund produces these books handsomely but inexpensive versions in paperback, it is my sincere hope that the entire set will quickly find its way on to the shelfs of every student, graduate student and professor interested in the Austrian School of Economics and the modern development of the theory of the entrepreneurial market process.  Soak these works in and learn from his careful dissection of doctrine, and philosophically astute style of argument.

Here is a lecture he recently gave on "Why Mises Is Important" -- it will be a perfect lead in to reading Ludwig von Mises: The Man and His Economics.
