A Biographical Dictionary of Women Economists

Edited by Robert W. Dimand, Mary Ann Dimand and Evelyn L. Forget

This major original reference work includes over one hundred specially commissioned articles on the lives and writings of women who made significant contributions to economics. It sheds new light on the rich, but too often neglected, heritage of women’s analysis of economic issues and participation in the discipline of economics. In addition to those who wrote in English, some notable Danish, Dutch, French, German, Greek, Italian, Japanese, Russian and Swedish women economists are included. This book will transform widely-held views about the past role of women in economics, and will stimulate further research in this exciting but underdeveloped field. It is dedicated to the memory of Michèle Pujol, a pioneer in the field.

when older textbooks were descriptive and of a historicist–encyclopaedic nature. As the selection of her works in the bibliography shows, NegrepontiDelivani has an interest not only in economic theory, but also in applied economics. She wrote books about the economic development of Northern Greece, a chance for her to expand her research in regional development and in public finance. She analysed the structure of Greek industry, the shadow economy, the Greek public debt and unemployment in the country. In these publications she focused on the structural weaknesses of the Greek economy and rejected monetarist and neoclassical policies to reduce Greek inflation in the 1980s and early 1990s. At the beginning of her career she taught and researched in the history of economic thought. Recently she has edited the diaries of her late husband that reveal some glimpses of Greek academic life between 1935 and 1985.
