The primary purpose of this book is to tell the story of the history of economics in a clear, scholarly, balanced, and interesting fashion. It is, after all,  a story of great importance—one that sharpens our understanding of contemporary economics and provides a unique perspective not found in other fields of the discipline.
The study of the history of economic thought continues to grow as the discipline of economics matures. New ideas, new evidence, new problems, and new values call for a reconsideration of basic disputes and major contributions of the past. Although the basic features of previous editions are retained, this edition has been substantially updated and revised. The most significant changes are listed next.
