'Like his mentor Joan Robinson, Geoff Harcourt's writings combine personal conviction, a passion for justice, policy relevance and penetrating analysis. Harcourt has a unique voice that is increasingly rare, and hence increasingly valuable. These essays, like all of his writings, are marked by an authoritative command of both contemporary and historical literatures, and engaging writing radiating grace, style and wit. Harcourt continues to be an inspirational figure for those working in the history of economics, who also share a desire to be relevant to contemporary economics, to students of economics and to the world.'
