1. Critical Ideas in Economics series

    Series editors: Kevin D. Hoover, Duke University, US and the late Mark Blaug, formerly of the University of London and University of Buckingham, UK

    This major new series will be an essential reference source for students, researchers and lecturers in economics. Each volume - prepared by a leading specialist - focuses on the concept widely used in economics, the historic uses and abuses of that concept, and the impact that the concept has had on the terms of references in the field of economics. The series is an important landmark in economics publishing, and will make a major contribution both to research and teaching. It will improve access to important areas of literature which will not be available in the archives of many of the newer libraries.
