About this book

Focusing on the transition from political economy to economics, this volume seeks to restore social content to economic abstractions through readings of nineteenth-century British and American literature. The essays gathered here, by new as well as established scholars of literature and economics, link important nineteenth-century texts and histories with present-day issues such as exploitation, income inequality, globalization, energy consumption, property ownership and rent, human capital, corporate power, and environmental degradation. Organized according to key concepts for future research, the collection has a clear interdisciplinary, humanities approach and international reach.  These diverse essays will interest students and scholars in literature, history, political science, economics, sociology, law, and cultural studies, in addition to readers generally interested in the Victorian period.

Reviews

From Political Economy to Economics Through Nineteenth-Century Literature encourages readers to rediscover social concerns that mainstream economists often overlook—within both economic concepts and literary texts.  Tough-minded and perceptive, the essays open new ways to connect literary analysis and economic theory.  An important contribution to the humanities and social sciences.” (Mary Poovey, Samuel Rudin University Professor in the Humanities, Professor of English, New York University, USA)
