Summary Annotation Designed as a resource for students and writers, this book provides not only brief biographical data on the economists who have shaped the discipline of economics, but also more extensive exposition and analysis of the major features of their economic thought. Fifty Major Economists offers balanced coverage of the contributions of a wide range of economists, from Adam Smith to Gary Becker and Robert E. Lucas, with more space being devoted to seminal theorists who opened up new horizons for economics. It also includes lists of the writers' works, along with guides to further reading and a glossary of the economic terms used in the book.
