Studies of the economists who struggled to establish a secure place for their discipline in American universities in the 19th c., and made significant contributions to the reshaping of American academic life. They were often at war among themselves as they sought to define the mission and methods of economics in an era of social and intellectual ferment. Case studies of the experiences at William and Mary, Virginia, South Carolina College, Brown, Harvard, Yale, Columbia, Johns Hopkins, Pennsylvania, Chicago, California and Stanford, MIT, and Wisconsin.
