This standard reference text is a guide to economists both past and present who have made a substantial contribution to the subject. It provides biographical, bibliographical and critical information on over 1000 living economists and approximately 500 deceased economists. Each of the entries gives pertinent biographical data, a select bibliography, an assessment of the economist's distinct contribution, and a listing of those critical studies important for an understanding of her/his work. The living entrants themselves provided data on what they considered their major contribution to economics. The living economists were selected by identifying the most frequently-cited economists in the social sciences citation index. The entrants are not confined to economists working in the English language, but include all major economists on a worldwide basis. The book includes a country index as well as an index of major fields of work.
