This major new series reprints in book form a selection of the most important and influential articles on probability, econometrics and economic games which cumulatively have had a major impact on the development of modern economics. Many of these articles and papers were originally published in relatively inaccessible journals and will not be available in the archives of many university libraries.

A major feature of the series are the detailed editorial introductions to each volume which discuss the criteria for selection and locate the articles in the context of the development of the literature. In addition, there are also introductions to the constituent parts within each volume. This editorial structure will make each volume an invaluable resource both for teaching and for research.

The series will include both the classic articles which are linked through the editorial structure to reprints of the most recent and influential articles in the field. By combining classic material with the articles at the frontiers of modern research, the editors have prepared a series that will be indispensable to any serious scholar of student with an interest in econometrics and economic games.
‘Much of the material included will be of interest mainly to the historian of thought. . . . the individual volumes in this set can be viewed as independent volumes (contrary to the idea of cross-fertilisation), and some of them work quite well when seen in that way. . . . The editors present an impressive array of material and invite readers to read widely.’
– John Alrich and Alan Hamlin, The Economic Journal
