Rare is the scholar to inspire a festschrift--a volume of papers written by top specialists in honor of a major thinker-but this one is very special. It is sure to grow in importance as the years move on, for it contains phenomenal contributions written in the tradition of the work of Hans-Hermann Hoppe.

Hoppe is one of the most important scholars of our time. He has made pioneering contributions to sociology, economics, philosophy, and history. His important books include Handeln und Erkennen (1976), Kritik der Kausalwissenschaftlichen Sozialforschung (1983), Eigentum, Anarchie, und Staat (1987), A Theory of Socialism and Capitalism (1989), The Economics and Ethics of Private Property (1993, enlarged 2nd edition 2006), Democracy--The God That Failed (2001), and The Myth of National Defense (editor, 2003). He is the founder and president of the international Property and Freedom Society, which promotes scientific debate in combination with intransigent libertarian radicalism.

Now Professor Emeritus of Economics at UNLV and Distinguished Fellow with the Ludwig von Mises Institute, Hoppe and his writings have inspired scholars around the world to follow in his footsteps and to provide a scientific foundation for individual freedom and a free society. The festschrift honors the occasion of his 60th birthday.

The festschrift contains personal testimonies and essays in Professor Hoppe's preferred research areas, such as political philosophy, democracy, and economics. The contributors are colleagues, collaborators, and former students from all over the world, including Llewellyn H. Rockwell, Sean Gabb, Jesús Huerta de Soto, Robert Higgs, Frank van Dun, Paul Gottfried, Joseph T. Salerno, Walter Block, and Thomas J. DiLorenzo. The 400-page Festschrift was presented to Professor Hoppe at a private ceremony on July 29, 2009, in Auburn, AL during Mises University 2009.
