About this book


This book is about the history of neoclassical international economics, the century-old dominant paradigm of teaching and research in the area of international economic relations. At a time when, in so many of its areas, economics is showing a tendency to go 'back to its roots', a critical historical survey of what has been called 'the queen realm of economics' seems most appropriate. Befitting its title, the prestige of international economics is high among social science disciplines. This book tells the story of that achievement from the beginning of the neoclassical period (1890) to contemporary developments. '...a very helpful account of the historical development of the ideas in international economics. It covers both the real economy and the financial, ie balance-of-payments, aspects. As such it provides a useful perspective on what forms the basis of our understanding of international economic relations. It will be of help and appeal to students and will provide an additional source for those who wish to add to their knowledge in this field.' T.M.Rybczynski
