Critical Acclaim
‘Perspectives on the History of Economic Thought presents a careful selection of the most important and original contributions to the annual proceedings of the History of Economics Society. This series is essential to any serious student of the history of economics and to the collection of any University library supporting research in economic thought.’
– The late Mark Blaug, formerly of the University of London and University of Buckingham, UK

‘All these studies remind us of the importance of the history of economic thought in giving us a better understanding of the influence of our economic, social and political theorising about man and society. Whenever we feel the need to refresh ourselves with historical perspectives, this collection gives us a unique chance to indulge these feelings. It contains all the most recent research of outstanding quality, which will lend depth to any further studies of intellectual history.’
– Jacques Meganck, Economisch Sociaal Tijdschrift

‘The history of economics is a fascinating subject in its own right, an important part of the history of ideas and a source of valuable insights for modern economists. This new series is a welcome addition to the literature on the subject.’
– Anthony Brewer, The Times Higher Education Supplement
