This book series publishes new scholarship within the Austrian school of economics. Although considered outside of mainstream economics since the 1930s, the Austrian school has continued to thrive as an alternative position that traces back to the marginalist revolution.
The Austrian approach provides unique insight into market processes and offers a powerful framework for understanding major economic events such as the fall of socialist economies in the early 1990s and the financial crisis of 200708. Thanks to this promise, and to the limitations of mainstream economics, the Austrian tradition of social thought has recently attracted increasing interest from a new generation of economists, social scientists, and related scholars.
The series seeks to capture this renewed interest by publishing original research within the modern Austrian tradition: contributions that make new theoretical advances building on the work of Mises, Hayek, Rothbard, Kirzner, Lachmann and others or that offer fresh and novel applications of this work. The series publishes research that advances or relates to the Austrian tradition from scholars in economics, management, philosophy, political science, sociology, and related fields.
The series invites contributions from both new and established scholars and welcomes proposals ranging from multi-authored collections of essays to single-authored monographs. Junior scholars are especially encouraged to submit their work.
