Reviews

“The essential facts about the rise and fall of inflation are discussed and the related literature is reviewed. These aspects of the book are generally well done, … book aimed at attracting the attention of a wider audience: … .” (Selwyn Cornish, Economic Record, Vol. 93 (300), March, 2017)

“This is a scholarly and in many respects impressive book, derived from the author’s doctoral thesis. … Read as a set of essays on the relationship between contemporary economic ideas and macroeconomic policy-making in Australia between the 1940s and the 1980s, this book makes a strong contribution to historical literature.” (John Singleton, Australian Historical Studies, Vol. 48 (1), February, 2017)
