Worlds of Political Economy explores the meanings and workings of political economy as a source of knowledge and power in national, imperial, and transnational settings in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Giving attention to the rich and contested social and cultural nature of political economy as a cluster of ideas and working practices, this volume brings together original essays on sociability, philanthropy and self-interest, imperial land and ecology, international development and public health, expert cultures and transnational diffusion.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Ranging widely and perceptively across national and imperial frontiers, the resulting studies provide compelling evidence of public (and popular) engagement with the myriad worlds of political economy that lay outside the narrow confines of economic science.' - Margot Finn, Reader in History at the University of Warwick

'By considering various forms of economic knowledge at work both inside nation states and across national boundaries, within the institutions of civil society as well as within state agencies, this volume recovers dimensions that are ignored in conventional histories of economic thinking.' - Donald Winch, Research Professor at the Graduate Centre for Research in the Humanities, University of Sussex
