A Biographical Dictionary of Dissenting Economists
This is the first biographical dictionary of dissenting economists to appear in any language. As an extensive and authoritative guide to economists both past and present, it provides biographical, bibliographical and critical information on 90 economists working in the non-neoclassical tradition, broadly defined. It includes entries on amongst others radical economists, Marxists, post Keynesians, Kaleckians, behaviouralists and institutionalists. The book demonstrates the extent and richness of the radical non-orthodox tradition in economics.
The volume marks a departure from what is usually found in a biographical dictionary for, in addition to providing standard biographical information, the living economists were themselves asked to state their principal contributions to economics, supplemented by a list of their leading books and articles.
A Biographical Dictionary of Dissenting Economists will be an essential reference source for instructors, researchers and students of economics.
