This first volume of History of Economic Analyses provides short biographical articles written by historians of economics about economists since William Petty until Stiglitz and Krugman.
This volume (and the others) is edited by two historians of economics. Gilbert Faccarelo is well known in the field in France, as is Heinz Kurz in Austria. Volume 1 provides short biographical essays. Though predominantly presenting western economists, it is still a quite handy reference, used a lot by historians of economics and economists. Volume II deals with schools of thought in economics, while Vol. III concentrates on developments in major fields of economics.
