The Elgar Companion to Alfred Marshall

Edited by the late Tiziano Raffaelli, formerly Professor of the History of Economic Thought, University of Pisa, Italy, the late Giacomo Becattini, formerly Professor of Political Economy and Marco Dardi, Professor of Economics, University of Florence, Italy

The Companion places Alfred Marshall’s ideas in their historical context, highlighting the many streams of social research originating from them. The contributors form a remarkable cast of leading experts, covering a spectrum of Marshallian themes and issues.

‘Marshall’s importance has been widely recognized for over one hundred years and there is a vast quantity of research and writing on his work. Tiziano Raffaelli, Giacomo Becattini and Marco Dardi have made an impressive contribution to that literature as editors of The Elgar Companion to Alfred Marshall. . . Generally the entries serve as good introductions to the subjects they address and will be particularly useful to students, researchers and non-specialists. . . It makes a definite contribution in highlighting the breadth and complexity of Marshall’s thought without underplaying his contributions to economics. The Elgar Companion to Alfred Marshall makes a fine addition to any economics reference collection.’
– David Andrews, EH.Net

‘. . . this stimulating, wide-ranging and ambitious volume manages to combine an impressive range of scholarship with some wonderful insights into individual topics. . . It is a substantial intellectual undertaking that makes a significant contribution to the study of Alfred Marshall and Marshallian economics for which economists, historians of economics and intellectual historians of Victoriana will be greatly indebted.’
– Mark Donoghue, History of Economics Review

‘This monumental volume, containing 99 essays of uniformly high quality by 72 contributors, is a testament to the excellence of its three editors. It illuminates every facet of Alfred Marshall’s intellectual development and creativity. . . This volume, which demonstrates a solid intellectual foundation, is a very important work in economics. Highly recommended.’
– J. Murdock, Choice
