'THIS WISE AND LUCID GUIDE TO PLURALISM IN ECONOMICS EMBODIES THE VALUES OF ITS CAUSE. GENEROUS, OPEN-MINDED, FAIR, ACCURATE AND ACCESSIBLE: JOHN HARVEY'S NEW BOOK IS A FINE ACHIEVEMENT THAT EVERY ECONOMICS MAJOR SHOULD READ.'
- JAMES K. GALBRAITH, THE UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS AT AUSTIN, USJOHN HARVEY'S ACCESSIBLE BOOK PROVIDES A NON-TECHNICAL YET RIGOROUS INTRODUCTION TO VARIOUS SCHOOLS OF THOUGHT IN ECONOMICS. PREMISED ON THE IDEA THAT ECONOMIC THINKING HAS BEEN STUNTED BY THE ALMOST COMPLETE REJECTION OF ANYTHING OUTSIDE THE MAINSTREAM, THE AUTHOR HOPES THAT THIS VOLUME WILL OPEN READERS' MINDS AND LEAD THEM IN NEW AND PRODUCTIVE DIRECTIONS. IN HIS EXPLORATION OF NEOCLASSICAL, MARXIST, AUSTRIAN, POST KEYNESIAN, INSTITUTIONALIST, NEW INSTITUTIONALIST AND FEMINIST SCHOOLS OF THOUGHT, UNIQUE FEATURES OF EACH APPROACH ARE HIGHLIGHTED, COMPLEMENTED BY DISCUSSIONS OF METHODOLOGY, WORLD VIEWS, POPULAR THEMES, AND CURRENT ACTIVITIES. ACCURATE AND IMPARTIAL, EVERY CHAPTER COVERING A HETERODOX SCHOOL OF THOUGHT HAS BEEN VETTED BY AN ACKNOWLEDGED EXPERT IN THAT FIELD. THOUGH WRITTEN FOR USE IN UNDERGRADUATE COURSES, THIS GUIDE WILL NO DOUBT OFFER A GREAT DEAL TO ANY SCHOLAR WISHING TO GAIN A FRESH PERSPECTIVE AND GREATER UNDERSTANDING OF THE VARIETY AND BREADTH OF CURRENT ECONOMIC THINKING.
