Synopsis

The Growth of Economic Thought, 3rd ed. by Henry William Spiegel

In a new and updated edition of this classic textbook, Henry William Spiegel brings his discussion and analysis of economic thought into the 1990s. A new introductory chapter offering an overall view of the history of economics and a bibliographic survey of the economic literature of the 1980s and early 1990s have been added. Maintaining the link between economics and the humanities, Spiegel's text will continue to introduce students to a wide range of topics in the history of economic thought.From reviews of previous editions: The history of economic thought to end all histories of economic thought. -Robert D. Patton, Journal of Economic Literature The book is in the grand tradition of the history of doctrines. It is a history of economic thought broadly conceived-and superbly written to boot. It is not to much to say that Spiegel's book will become and remain a leading text in the field. -Warren J. Samuels, Social ScienceThe author conveys the essence of an idea simply and clearly, yet in a graceful style. -William F. Kennedy, Journal of Economic Literature
