Nation, State, and Economy
This was Mises’s second book. It was written following his military service in World War I. It is also his first book that dealt with political themes—and began Mises’s full-scale launch into the fight against collectivism that would be a theme of his later writings. Its original title was Imperialism and one can only regret that the publisher didn’t keep it, for that is its theme.
In Nation, State, and Economy, Mises takes up the question of the proper political order to sustain the peace in the age of democracy. It was published less than a year after Austria’s defeat in World War I, and examines and compares prewar and postwar political and economic conditions. He argues that each country’s prosperity supports rather than undercuts the prosperity of other countries.
