Economics in Perspective: A Critical History.

GALBRAITH, John Kenneth.

Item Number: 5614

Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1987.

First edition of the author’s classic work tracing the evolution of economic ideas from antiquity to the present day. Octavo, original cloth. Inscribed by John Kenneth Galbraith in the year of publication on the front free endpaper. Fine in a fine dust jacket.

"Another classic by Galbraith. In this volume he charts the evolution of economic ideas from Greek and Roman times, demonstrating the key interaction between the economic environment and economic ideas. Throughout, he concentrates on the major economic questions of what determines the selling price of a good or service and what is the proper distribution of income. Galbraith recounts this story wittily and well. Part biography, part history, part economic theory, this book belongs on the shelf with Robert L. Heilbroner's The Worldly Philosophers as an introduction to the history of economic thought. Most highly recommended" (Richard C. Schiming).
