Overview

Writing in a conversational style, Slavin (Union County College; The New School University) integrates essential mathematical background with basic and advanced concepts in this economics text for undergraduates. He reviews math that students may not have covered since middle school and high school, encouraging interactive rather than passive reading with numerical problems to solve, tables to fill in, graphs to draw, and data to analyze. Each chapter is followed by workbook pages that include multiple-choice and fill-in questions. Coverage progresses from supply and demand and the mixed economy through 20th-century economic theory and international finance. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
