This book is not intended as a full biography of Sir Dennis Holme Robertson.1 It is an examination of the most important aspect of his work as an economist — his theory of industrial fluctuation; but before this examination is undertaken it is necessary to survey the background against which Robertson put forward his views on economics. This task can only be accomplished by providing a brief biography.
