The Elgar Companion to Alfred Marshall by Tiziano Raffaelli
In light of the recent and ongoing surge of interest in Alfred Marshall's work, this new and original reference volume fills a gap in the literature through a detailed examination of his thought and of his contributions to economics and social science. The Companion places Alfred Marshall's ideas in their historical context, highlighting the many streams of social research originating from them. The contributors form a remarkable cast of leading experts, covering a spectrum of Marshallian themes and issues, including: * his life and work * background and influences * scope and methodology of economics * economic analysis - including distribution theory, industrial economics and money * social and political issues * relations with his contemporaries * the Marshallian tradition * relevance to contemporary economics. This comprehensive and multidisciplinary Companion illustrates the relevance of Marshall to present-day economic reality and as such will prove an invaluable reference tool for general economists and a wide ranging audience: historians of economic thought; economic, political and cultural historians; industrial, regional and development economists; economists interested in institutional, cognitive and evolutionary economics.
Customer Reviews - The Elgar Companion to Alfred Marshall
'Marshall's importance has been widely recognized for over one hundred years and there is a vast quantity of research and writing on his work. Tiziano Raffaelli, Giacomo Becattini and Marco Dardi have made an impressive contribution to that literature as editors of The Elgar Companion to Alfred Marshall. . . Generally the entries serve as good introductions to the subjects they address and will be particularly useful to students, researchers and non-specialists. . . It makes a definite contribution in highlighting the breadth and complexity of Marshall's thought without underplaying his contributions to economics. The Elgar Companion to Alfred Marshall makes a fine addition to any economics reference collection.' -- David Andrews, EH.Net '. . . this stimulating, wide-ranging and ambitious volume manages to combine an impressive range of scholarship with some wonderful insights into individual topics. . . It is a substantial intellectual undertaking that makes a significant contribution to the study of Alfred Marshall and Marshallian economics for which economists, historians of economics and intellectual historians of Victoriana will be greatly indebted.' -- Mark Donoghue, History of Economics Review 'This monumental volume, containing 99 essays of uniformly high quality by 72 contributors, is a testament to the excellence of its three editors. It illuminates every facet of Alfred Marshall's intellectual development and creativity. . . This volume, which demonstrates a solid intellectual foundation, is a very important work in economics. Highly recommended.' -- J. Murdock, Choice
