European Economists of the Early 20th Century, Volume 2
Studies of Neglected Continental Thinkers of Germany and Italy
Warren Samuels's second and concluding selection of essays focuses on early 20th century economists who, while relatively well-known in their times, have tended to be obscured by the more prominent stars of the discipline. It illustrates that economics is more diverse and complex than conventional histories of economic thought tend to identify. In particular it includes contributions on those economists who were not in the mainstream, or, if in the mainstream, practised economics in a somewhat alternative manner.
Warren Samuels has assembled a collection of essays on thirteen economists - six German and seven Italian - who remain noteworthy of study to this day. The economists featured in the volume represent a variety of ways of practising economics - theoretical, methodological and policy-orientated - who all contributed to the understanding of economic processes and institutions at the deepest levels.
European Economists of the Early 20th Century will appeal to all those with an interest in the philosophy and evolution of economics and to historians of economic thought.

What Reviewers Are Saying
`. . . one should underline the very high quality of the analytical assessments featuring in most of the papers. . . and, above all, the fact that these 300-odd pages stand out as a real goldmine of hard-to-recover information for historians of twentieth-century economics. In particular, all essays offer excellent bibliographies of the primary and secondary sources on the various economists. . . a remarkable contribution to our discipline.' -- Nicola Giocoli, EH.Net
