What Reviewers Are Saying
'Those desirous of learning more about the theory of exchange in the formative period of marginalist economics can benefit considerably from Creedy's essays, here conveniently reprinted in the one place. Those who lack the originals on their bookshelves, whose work Creedy discusses, or who cannot easily obtain them from their university libraries, will find the selections reprinted in the companion volume quite handy. In short, these are useful collections to order for your library and to place on the reading list of your history of economics course if it deals in depth with the early marginalists. This is a quality contribution from a good specialist historian of economics.' -- Peter Groenewegen, History of Economics Review
