Mark Blaug has with good reason been described as the most widely read economist of his generation. He has made important contributions to economic history, cultural economics, the history of economic thought, the methodology of economics and the economics of education.
Not Only an Economist reflects the wide range of Professor Blaug's interests and includes new and recent work on Adam Smith, Hayek and Keynes and studies in methodology, as well as new contributions to the economics of education. These are supplemented by essays arguing the economic case for subsidies to the arts. The book concludes with a selection from the one hundred book reviews that he has written over the years.
