Mark Blaug is one of the most consistently saleable, high quality authors currently writing in economics. His Economic Theory in Retrospect is an established classic in its field.
Acclaim for the first edition:

‘These lightly written but seriously conceived vignettes are admirably fair and judicious without being obsequious. Anyone who reads them will learn not only a lot about the world’s most famous economists, but also a good deal about economics.’
– Robert Heilbroner, New School of Social Research, New York City, US

‘Mark Blaug’s encyclopaedic knowledge of economics and of economists eminently qualify him to write these fascinating vignettes . . . Each vignette is short, normally two or three pages, and contains a description of each economist’s principal contribution(s) followed by a list of important works and a biographical sketch. In each case there is a photograph: often there is a judicious assessment and in many cases there are useful references to the secondary literature.’
– D. Collard, Economic Journal
