"Socialism" - Was this the true Magnum Opus of Ludwig von Mises?

I've been invited by the more anarchistic of the UK's two Libertarian Alliances into doing a talk on the magnificent Socialism, by Ludwig von Mises. The talk should be sometime after April, and I'm looking forward to it already. By Gad, I've got most of my notes prepared already - the hard part will be cutting the talk down to less than one hour.

I really do believe that this is a more important work than Human Action, one that will live longer in human memory than any other of his mighty works, and will be far better known in a thousand years that it is now, perhaps one of the few books of the twentieth century that will live that long. Why?

Ah. Well. There's a question.

You'll have to wait for my talk on that, now, won't you! :-)

I hope you're going to make it available on mp3. Or at least the transcript.

Well, I'm hoping one of the anonymouses will be there, and he's involved with the publishing trade so maybe he can come equipped with the requisite equipment. But, it's a good point. I think now may be the time to make a trip down Tottenham Court road to buy some recording equipment. Any recommendations?
