LARGE PRINT EDITION! More at LargePrintLiberty.com. In this volume Mises provides in ecomic terms an explanation of the international conflicts that caused both world wars. Although written more than half a century ago, Mises's main theme still stands: government interference in the ecomy leads to conflicts and wars.
