Italian Economists of the 20th Century provides a unique up-to-date assessment and appreciation of the work of 12 pioneering economists. The essays - written by a group of leading international scholars - are a fitting tribute to the important contribution that Italian economists have made to twentieth century economics. This important book includes entries not only on familiar names such as Vilfredo Pareto, Piero Sraffa and Franco Modigliani, but also on less well known yet equally important economists. It demonstrates the rich intellectual tradition in Italy and its profound - yet often unrecognized - impact on economics in general.

`In a brief review of a fairly large volume it has not been possible to do justice to the richness of most of the chapters and the book can be recommended for closer study and for its useful guides for further primary and secondary materials. Many readers will benefit from it.' -- Ian Steedman, History of Economic Thought Newsletter `There is a distinct national style to Italian economic thought that descends from, and sometimes dissents from, Walrasian general equilibrium theory. In this splendid collection of twelve intellectual portraits of twentieth century Italian economists, we learn once again of the unique Italian contribution to economics.' -- The late Mark Blaug, formerly of the University of London and University of Buckingham, UK
