Review from previous edition The scope of this book is vast...The strength of the book is that it provides a clear, non-technical account of some of the most important recent developments in economic theory, which many readers will find informative...Though many conclusions reached by Screpanti and Zamagni are controversial, the book makes a stimulating read and provides a useful addition to the literature on this subject. * Times Higher Educational Supplement, October 1993 *
Screpanti and Zamagni develop a thorough, informative and interesting narrative of the history of economic theory. * Choice, November 1993 *
