Editorial Reviews

'This is an interesting and unusual volume ... There is a great deal of useful information in this book.' - Professor Emeritus John King, La Trobe University, Australia 'A unique contribution to the existing literature on Hayek... Leeson has to be credited with providing many details about the establishment and development of the Austrian School of Economics. He also provides a vast amount of information about a number of nineteenth and twentieth century theorists who contributed to the development of the discipline of economics. His explanation of the relationship between Hayek and Mises is very informative, particularly with regards to some of the specific agreements and disagreements they had with one another.' - Filip Birsen, The European Journal of the History of Economic Thought 2014; Volume 21, Issue 1. 'This collective biography is an excellent resource for those interested in, or working on, the career and thought of Friedrich Hayek. In particular it provides a good deal of information regarding Hayek's relationship with other intellectuals and will serve as an important starting point for further research exploring their influence upon his work. Finally, the collection of chapters work well with one another in a way that achieves the goal, outlined by Leeson, of describing, interpreting and integrating Hayek's life, belief and philosophy... [The study of the relationship between Hayek and William Warren Bartley III] certainly provides a fascinating and colourful account of the personal life and career of this often troubled but apparently brilliant man, who Karl Popper called the best young philosopher he had taught ... Leeson does excellent work here using a range of archival sources. The Hayek, Popper and Lakatos papers are all drawn upon as is the Harvard Crimson and other lesser looked at sources. This will be of interest to anyone attempting to gain an insight into Hayek's attitude to the communist threat and brings to life his time at Cambridge in the 1940s.' - Sean Irving, conomia History / Methodology / Philosophy 2014.
