This two volume dictionary in Continuum's acclaimed reference series includes substantive entries on the lives and works of 500 figures, from ancient times to the present, who have professionally worked in, and theorized about, "the dismal science." In truth, economics could hardly be categorized as such. Among the countries of continental Europe represented are Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Holland, Hungary, Italy, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Spain, and Sweden. Along with the two general editors and more than 100 contributors, an international board of 20 economists and theorists have teamed up in the selection, translation, and editing. Among the figures included are Aristotle, A. Oikonomos, St. Thomas Aquinas, Jean-Baptiste Say, Karl Marx, Carl Menger, Dag Hammarskjoeld, Oskar R. Lange, and hundreds more.
