In a lively expository style, the book offers profiles of some outstanding European economists active between the 18th and 20th century. Each chapter focuses on a different economist, with extensive biography and an ample account of his economic thought and philosophical views, including the controversies over interpretation. Cross-references highlight lines of development in economics from the 18th to the late 20th century. Scholarly in approach but eminently readable, it is recommended to students while also being accessible to readers new to the study of economics.
