On the History of Economic Thought is introduced by an essay in intellectual autobiography outlining the development of Coats key ideas and the distinctive elements of his approach. Two themes in particular emerge. The first is the difference between British and American economics, both in content and in the practice of the profession. This is an important element in all areas of his research. The second theme is in the interrelationships between economic ideas, events (or conditions) and policy issues. The book concludes by offering an assessment of the current state of the discipline indicating the advantages an historian of economics can offer as a commentator on recent developments.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"[Coats] was the single figure who by exhortation and example managed to keep the sociology of economics alive . . . . His urbane style and catholic tastes are an inspiration to us all."
-Philip Mirowski, University of Notre Dame
"For decades Bob Coats has been contributing in the journals to an extraordinary range of the most interesting topics and issues . . . . It is very good news indeed, for those interested in the history and method of economics, that the Coats oeuvre is now to collected in a more permanent form."
-T.W. Hutchison, Professor Emeritus, University of Birmingham
