Reviews

Using exemplary figures to trace out a long and complicated history of ideas, this book admirably achieves its main goal, which is 'to put economic ideas into the context of the history of facts'. Given the scope of the endeavor and the brevity of the book, the discussion remains surprisingly accessible, clear, and concise.' - Warren Breckman, American Historical Review
