texte de présentation

This pathbreaking encyclopedia is the very first fully refereed A-Z compendium of the main principles, concepts, problems, institutions, schools and policies associated with political economy. Based on developments in political economy since the 1960s and is designed to provide a comprehensive introduction to the field as well as being an authoritative reference work. Undergraduates taking courses in political economy or graduate students coming to the field for the first time will come to rely on this work as a key point of reference and for direction in their further reading. This lucid work compares for the first time the disparate theories of political economy (e.g. Marxist, Feminist, Sraffian etc.) and emphasizes the application of their principles to real world problems such as inflation, unemployment, development and financial instability. The extensive international team of consultants and contributors has produced a monumental work with truly global perspective.

Résumé du livre

This encyclopedia is the almanach of economic thought: Its aim is no less than to comprise each and every author, idea, concept, theory, et al. that have ever made an impact on the subject.


Commentaire de nos éditeurs:

Economic thought is rich in variety; if anything, this encyclopedia shows just that. Professionals as much as any layperson will relish this compendium of the subject, both as a handy resource and a fascinating book of its own to dwell in.
