The Austrian tradition began formally with Carl Menger's 1871 work Principles of Economics. But its roots stretch back to the late-scholastic period, when philosophers first began to think systematically about the relationship between human choice and material resources.

This collection presents ideas from the full sweep of this intellectual history, highlighting 15 thinkers who made the greatest contribution to advancing the Austrian School of economics. These original essays are written by top Austrians who explain the Austrian view of property, markets, prices, competition, entrepreneurship, business cycles, and government policy.

Contributors include Murray Rothbard, Israel Kirzner, Joseph Salerno, Hans Hoppe, Jeffrey Herbener, Peter Klein, Mark Thornton, Jesus Huerta de Soto, Larry Sechrest, John Egger, Roger Garrison, Shawn Ritenour, Thomas DiLorenzo, and Jeffrey Tucker.

Economists covered are de Mariana, Cantillon, Turgot, Say, Bastiat, Menger, Wicksteed, Boehm-Bawerk, Fetter, Mises, Hazlitt, Hayek, Hutt, Roepke, and Rothbard

This book has been such a successful introductory text that it is the primary required reading for students attending the Mises University. It provides an opportunity to discover the main ideas of the School through the lives and works of its primary expositors.
