The array of contributions offered in this volume on the growth of economics is comprehensive. There are sufficient number of ideas and perspectives about economic themes to whet the appetite of the most scholarly of readers. Others, more inclined to welcome efforts to explain economic phenomena, will find a diversity of interpretations of events which should be sufficient to stimulate the imagination as well as the understanding of policy choices.

The book offers insights about developments in economic theory and modes of analysis during the twentieth century and earlier.

Rarely in one place has such an eminent group of prolific scholars explored the twists and turns of the development of the discipline known as the ‘Queen of the social sciences’. John Lodewijks, Professor & Head, Univ. of Western Sydney

All the scholars have to save this book near the writing-desk.” Vittorangelo Orati, Professor & Rector, Iiaess
