More Information
This highly illuminating book marks a significant stage in our growing understanding of how the development of national traditions of economic thought has been affected by both internal and external factors.

The expert contributors set an explicit agenda for the study of the dissemination of economic ideas across four centuries, acknowledging that the history of dissemination is also a history of the flux of economic beliefs, rendering any generalisation difficult, if not impossible. Topics explored include systems of political economy, European and American interactions, the diffusion of economic ideas in South-Eastern Europe and beyond, and the exchange of ideas between Japan and the rest of the world.

This book will prove a fascinating and stimulating read for scholars and researchers in the field of economics generally, and more specifically in heterodox economics, the history of economic thought and economic theory.
Critical Acclaim
‘This book is highly recommended for the richness and novelty of its case studies. Leaving aside the positive contribution made in enhancing our understanding of Japanese economic thought, by giving voice to economic traditions that had been previously neglected, and by showing the complexity of the interaction between the ‘centers’ of economic theorizing and the ‘periphery,’ the book has a great capacity to raise deep questions on the ways in which economic ideas originate, travel, adapt, and eventually become institutionalized.’
– Gerardo Serra, Journal of the History of Economic Thought
