May 24th, 2013 will remain in the annals of the Circle Bastiat as an infamous day of self-promotion. There is indeed a second publication which yours truly is most happy to announce: the Russian edition of the Last Knight of Liberalism: Последний рыцарь либерализма: Биография Людвига фон Мизеса (Chelyabinsk: Социум, 2013), 893 pp. Translated by Alexander Kuryaev, Tatiana Danilova, Elena Vasilyeva, Marina Oborina, Yuri Nurmeev, Vasily Koshkin, and Natalia Avtonomova.

My Bielorussian doctoral student, Olga Peniaz, sent me the picture of the book-cover, which seems to be identical with the Amercian edition except for the Cyrillic letters. How truly astonishing that the first translation of this book (and possibly the only one ever) has been made for those very people who arguably suffered most under the ideas of statism and socialism, which the great Ludwig von Mises opposed so fiercely during all his life. My special thanks go to the wonderful persons who have made this edition possible, especially to the sponsors, and to the translator team coordinated by Alexander Kuryaev, who also made a book presentation on May 18th (watch the video as from about 1h30). God bless you, and I hope to meet you all in person one day.

Jörg Guido Hülsmann is senior fellow of the Mises Institute where he holds the 2018 Peterson-Luddy Chair and was director of research for Mises Fellows in residence 1999-2004.  He is author of Mises: The Last Knight of Liberalism and The Ethics of Money Production. He teaches in France, at Université d'Angers. His full CV is here.
