A Chinese (Mandarin) translation of Professor Hoppe’s The Ethics and Economics of Private Property has officially passed Chinese censorship review and will be published soon in mainland China. More details to come.
According to Matheus Vieira, who alerted me to this, the first run (about 5 thousand copies) sold out already in about 9 months and is already on the second run—very impressive given the subject matter and type of book. Vieira also informs me that the publisher is working on a translation of The Economics and Ethics of Private Property.
A slew of Hungarian translations of Professor Hoppe’s works has just come to our attention, and are all listed here:
As noted here, at the 2019 Austrian Economics Research Conference in Auburn at the Mises Institute, Professor Hoppe was honored a panel presentation “The Significance of Hans-Hermann Hoppe,” on the occasion of Professor Hoppe’s 70th birth year.
Part I of The Libertarian Quest for a Grand Historical Narrative, Mises Wire (Nov. 5 2018), has been translated into Portuguese, as A busca libertária por uma narrativa histórica global (March 13, 2019).

From Malice’s shownotes:
It took a trip to Bodrum, Turkey, but on this week’s “YOUR WELCOME” Michael Malice sits down for an exclusive interview with the legendary and notorious Hans-Hermann Hoppe. Hoppe is the author of (among other works) “Democracy: The God That Failed” and one of the world’s leading exponents of right-wing libertarian thought–and the consequent subject of many memes. As president and founder of the Property and Freedom Society, Hoppe hosts an annual international meeting of political radicals. Hoppe has taken a policy of declining all interviews so this is a rare chance to see him discuss his work, being a dad, studying with Murray Rothbard and, yes, telling a joke.

Sean Gabb’s Radical Coup: A Case for Reaction (The Hampden Press, 2018) has recently been published. It includes my Foreword, reproduced below.
It is no easy task to list all of Sean Gabb’s talents. He is a historian, a sociologist and social critic, a political and legal theorist, a linguist and classicist, as well as a prolific and highly acclaimed novelist, and in all of his writings he is, if I may be so presumptuous to say so as a non-native speaker of English, a great stylist of the English language. Above all, however, he is a libertarian. Indeed, Sean Gabb is England’s Mr. Libertarian. [continue reading…]
The following is an edited transcript of Hans-Hermann Hoppe, The Libertarian Search for a Grand Historical Narrative (Part I) (PFS 2018). Published at Mises Wire, 11/5/2018. Video available here Hans-Hermann Hoppe, The Libertarian Search for a Grand Historical Narrative (Part I) (PFS 2018).
It is no secret that I am not a Hayekian. Still, I consider Hayek a great economist – not in the same league as Mises, but few if any economists are. Hayek’s fame in the public mind, however, has less to do with his economic writings but stems largely from his writings in political theory, and it is in this area where I consider Hayek as mostly deficient. Not even his system of definitions here is internally consistent. His excursions into the field of epistemology are quite ingenious, yet also here he falls short of the accomplishments of his teacher Mises. Nonetheless, owing to his wide-ranging interdisciplinary oeuvre, which contains a treasure trove of keen insights into many issues, I consider Hayek one of the 20th century’s outstanding intellectuals writing in the social sciences.
Professor Hoppe’s latest publication is the monograph Getting Libertarianism Right, published by the Mises Institute (2018). This is a compilation of edited transcripts from several of Professor Hoppe’s speeches from recent Property and Freedom Society annual meetings. [PDF; local copy]
