Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A study of the lives and efforts of ecomomists Henry Brougham and William Ellis, who worked to propagate classical economic ideas through various educational enterprises. Brougham worked to educate adults through organizations such as the Mechanics' Institutes and the Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge. Ellis founded and financed the Birkbeck Schools to teach young children the principles of economics. Their work provides a glimpse into an era when there was intense competition to win the minds of the middle and lower classes. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
