Aimed at students who have previously taken a course in economic principles, and who now want to develop their knowledge of microeconomic theory. Structured to take account of the standard teaching year's programme, the text is divided into 22 chapters and pitched at the 2nd-year student.
`Else and Curwin make an effort to keep the student in touch with recent developments by including such topics as bargaining search, contestable markets and voting behaviour...it will certainly appeal to those who wish to keep economic theory accessible to as wide a range of students as possible.'Times Higher Education Supplement This clear, concise introduction to intermediate microeconomics is essential reading for students with previous knowledge of economic principles. Geared to the standard year's course in universities and polytechnics, the treatment in this text reinforces the student's understanding of familiar topics and facilitates assimilation of new material.
