The Development of Economic Analysis traces the development of economics theory from Plato to contemporary thought. All the major movements are covered and presented here in six chronological parts. A "family tree" at the beginning of each section illustrates how the key ideas and thinkers connect and develop, accompanied by a list of important publications of that period. Now in its fifth edition, this book integrates selections from major works within their context and enables references to original sources. It is an invaluable aid to the study of economic thought.
