Description
‘This easy-to-read collection . . . tells the whole story. Filled with short, well-written pieces, the encyclopedia covers the names and ideas that preceded Keynes, that carried his work to the center of the profession, and that eventually supplanted him there . . . There are excellent and unexpected articles on the Austrian school, the Lausanne school, and the Ricardo effect. There are well-done pieces on all the basic theoretical models at the heart of Keynesianism . . . [the] volume has been well put together. The editors deserve special praise for letting each contributor tell his own story. Those who oppose Keynes’s ideas are just as well represented as those who carry the torch for him. This evenhandedness helps to ensure a volume that is truly representative and that will allow its users to get a full picture of the life and times of Keynesian economics.’
– Bradley W. Bateman, Grinnell College, US

‘It is the best single reference source on Keynesian economics and will be welcomed by students and teachers in economics as well as scholars in related social sciences and government policy makers.’
– Educational Book Review

‘The book will also be of some interest to serious scholars, partly because it includes biographies of many economists too young to have been included in the New Palgrave, such as Dornbusch, Fisher, Herschel Grossman, Kregel, Lucas, and Robert Townsend. It also includes some very interesting longer essays.’
– Peter Howitt, The Economic Journal

‘This book provides an excellent summary of the many strands of ‘Keynesian’- style thought both before and after 1936. Its well-considered entries take care to make explicit the assumptions and fundamental points of difference between theories too often concealed by the parents and advocates of specific theories in their zeal to promote the universality of the ideas. There is scarcely an entry that suffers from wordiness and repetition; the reader’s scarce time is not abused.’
– Elizabeth Webster, Economic Record

‘This reviewer found using this source exhilarating and endowed with additional interest in view of the 1997 discussion on the inclusion or noninclusion of Keynesian economics in introductory economics textbooks. The editors should be applauded for helping to preserve a part of intellectual heritage.’
– Bogdan Mieczkowski, American Reference Books

‘It is the best single reference source on Keynesian economics and will be welcomed by students and teachers in economics as well as scholars in related social sciences and government policy makers.’
– Educational Book Review

This authoritative and comprehensive reference work introduces the reader to the major concepts and leading contributors in the field of Keynesian economics.

An Encyclopedia of Keynesian Economics includes contributions by leading international authors working in the tradition of Keynes. Featuring accessible, informative and provocative entries on all the significant areas, the encyclopedia breaks new ground by bringing together widely dispersed but theoretically congruent ideas for the first time.

The book is divided into three general categories. First, concise biographies of economists who have contributed to the debate surrounding the economics of Keynes and the Keynesian Revolution; secondly, the basic principles, models and tools used by the participants in this discussion about the economic consequences of The General Theory. Finally, there are more lengthy entries on specific topics associated with Keynes and the Keynesian Revolution. In this section the principal factors which contributed to The General Theory, the economics of Keynes and the rise and apparent decline of Keynesian economics are reviewed.

The book will rapidly become established as the best single reference source on Keynesian economics and will be welcomed by students and teachers of economics as well as by scholars in related social sciences and by government policymakers.
