Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"It is said there is only one Mark Blaug, the doyen of the history of economic thought. There are, in fact, five, each more remarkable than his predecessor. This last edition of his magnum opus-witty, serious; iconoclastic, devout; in its core unchanged, full of new insights-is the best yet. I cannot imagine a scholar's library-or for that matter a student's-without it." Robert Heilbroner
