Paul A. Samuelson is perhaps best known to students of economics as the author of the best-selling introductory textbook. But he has also a long track-record of innovative scholarship at the cutting edge of the discipline and is one of the most prolific contemporary economists the profession has known. In recognition of his many contributions to raise the level of scientific analysis in economic theory, he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Economic Science, the first to a North American. In addition, he has been a leading figure in the trend towards a more rigorous mathematical exposition of economic theory.
The present volumes give students of economics and economic thought immediate access to Paul A. Samuelson's contributions and show how his work has been received and modified by others.
