Why did Mises do certain things in response to certain events?  This first full biography of Mises seeks to answer those many questions. In the first four chapters, Hulsmann covers Mises’ roots: his birth in September 1881 as a nobleman, his family including his brother Richard, the role of family in the region of Galicia in the late eighteen hundreds, his school years, social and economic problems, and his university years.

Lecture 1 of 10 from The Life, Times, and Work of Ludwig von Mises, a George and Joele Eddy Seminar.
