Economic Thought since Keynes outlines the evolution of economic thought since the publication of The General Theory, putting into perspective the trends, issues and developments in economics over the last half century.
The book begins with an historical account of the schools, debates and issues that have characterised economic thought over the past 50 years, and the authors who have played major or significant roles. This is followed by a dictionary in which 150 economists are featured with biographical details, a bibliography of their major published works, an analysis of their contributions to economic thought and a guide to the secondary literature. An important feature of the volume is a detailed and comprehensive index which will make it an invaluable source for both teaching and research.
