What Reviewers Are Saying
"'Every serious research economist will want to have a look at this comprehensive work.' - Edwin Burmeister, Research Professor of Economics, Duke University, US 'The award of the Nobel Prize has, for more than thirty years, been economists' way of informing the public at large about what work most of them think is important, and about who has done it. Anyone seeking to understand the development of recent economic ideas and the profession that has created them must deal with the Prize's history, and Vane and Mulhearn have provided an indispensable guide to it - brief, readable and accurate.' - David Laidler, Professor Emeritus and Bank of Montreal Professor, University of Western Ontario, Canada 'This is a splendid account of the personal stories of the Nobel Laureates in Economics, the diversity of practice of recent economists, and, perhaps above all, the nature of the Nobel Prize in Economics as a human, social institution. Inevitably but appropriately celebratory, the material will be readily accessible to, and hopefully attract, undergraduate students.' - Warren J. Samuels, Professor Emeritus of Economics, Michigan State University, US 'A useful book because it gives as much attention to more recent Laureates as well as to older ones whose lives and work are better known. I learned a lot about recent winners of the Prize that I hadn't known before. If you want an quick introduction to winners of the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economics, this is a good place to start.' - Roger E. Backhouse, Professor of the History and Philosophy of Economics, University of Birmingham, UK 'Howard Vane and Chris Mulhearn provide a valuable and readable introduction to the careers and main published works of the Nobel Laureates in economics. Students and teachers of economics will benefit from these lively and accessible guides to the wide range of insights and contributions by some of the great figures of modern economics. Readers will be intrigued to see how some of these insights have shaped the present state of economics, and will find that others offer starting-points for varied and fruitful further developments.' - Robert W. Dimand, Professor of Economics, Brock University, Canada"
