he Making of Economics is a highly original treatment of both the history of economic thought and of methodology. This is a contribution to the sociology of knowledge for which the author has been widely acclaimed. At a time when economics needs boldly critical self-appraisal his penetrative stance seems to me of central importance. -- Robert Heilbroner "Author of The Worldly Philosophers"
The Making of Economics is a major breakthrough in texts for History of Economics courses. It consistently views Economics as a developing discipline - a discipline that is seeking new formulations and this is responsive to real world problems. It will help students understand both history and current problems and will prepare them for the future. -- Hyman P Minsky "Washington University"
There are few scholars who have more consistently elicited my respect and admiration. Canterbery has his own position in the world of economics, and a wonderful ability to make it clear. Reading this new edition of The Making of Economics is a true pleasure. I urge the attention of all with an interest in this subject. -- John Kenneth Galbraith "Harvard University"
