Critical Acclaim
‘Great Economists before Keynes is an excellent work of reference, as well as an exemplary brief guide to the history of economic thought.’
– Dennis J. O’Keefe, Times Literary Supplement

‘This book is excellently written. I can think of no other book which comes anywhere near giving so much information in such a palatable and well-organized form. There are authoritative and well-rounded pictures of the individual economists which almost amount to a course in the history of economic thought rather than simply a reference book.’
– David Collard, University of Bath, UK
