The Development of Economic Analysis traces the development of economic theory from Plato through to contemporary thought. All the major movements are covered and presented here in six chronological parts.
The text includes a number of practical features:
* a 'family tree' at the beginning of each section, illustrating how the key streams and people connect and develop, accompanied by a list of key publications for that period
* integrated selections of readings from the major works enable reference to original sources
* The subject matter is divided to allow individual users to follow their preferences. The text also includes guidelines for use on a one semester course.
* Each part ends with a summary and questions to discuss, along with glossaries and suggestions for further reading
The result is a valuable aid to the study of economic thought and encourages students to examine the relevance to contemporary theory.
