Elgar original reference

Edited by Philip Arestis and Malcolm Sawyer

This is a thoroughly updated and revised edition of the first, and definitive, biographical dictionary of dissenting economists. It is an extensive and authoritative guide to economists both past and present, providing biographical, bibliographical and critical information on over 100 economists working in the non-neoclassical traditions broadly defined. It includes entries on, amongst others, radical economists, Marxists, post-Keynesians, behaviourists, Kaleckians and institutionalists. The book demonstrates the extent and richness of the radical heterodox tradition in economics.

In 1973, at a time when this was reputed to be a great distinction, he was appointed Reader in economics at the University of Cambridge.
