Reviews

“This book contains the author’s biography (his racial identity and situation, activities in the anti-Vietnam War, for example) and book reviews of many distinguished economists with whom the author has worked … . For all readers it represents (as indeed it has been for the reviewer) a good opportunity to approach various topics anew through the author’s own perspective and views.” (Toshaiki Hirai, Journal of the History of Economic Thought, Vol. 38 (4), December, 2016)

'Like his mentor Joan Robinson, Geoff Harcourt's writings combine personal conviction, a passion for justice, policy relevance and penetrating analysis. Harcourt has a unique voice that is increasingly rare, and hence increasingly valuable. These essays, like all of his writings, are marked by an authoritative command of both contemporary and historical literatures, and engaging writing radiating grace, style and wit. Harcourt continues to be an inspirational figure for those working in the history of economics, who also share a desire to be relevant to contemporary economics, to students of economics and to the world.' - Professor Avi Cohen, York University
