Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"In this gem of a reference book, Pressman (economics, Monmouth Univ.) summarizes the contributions of 50 key economists...The selection is historic, including nine economists born before 1800 as well as nine living economists. Economists from diverse political perspectives are included, all presented in a balanced manner...Such coverage is a welcome addition to textbook and popular treatments of economics that typically omit the history of economic thought. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Public and academic library collections at all levels." - M H Maier, Glendale Community College in CHOICE
