  • History and Financial Crisisby Christopher Kobrak; Mira Wilkins

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 140.00

    One striking weaknesses of our financial architecture, which helped bring on and perhaps deepen the Panic of 2008, is an inadequate appreciation of the past. Information about how the system functioned and the reliability of organizations and institutional controls were drawn from a relatively narrow group of recent examples. History and Financial... more...

  • A History of Marxian Economics, Volume IIby Michael Charles Howard; John Edward King

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 56.50

    This second volume completes a critical history of the social, political, and theoretical forces behind Marxian economics--the only work in English to offer such comprehensive treatment. Beginning with Marxian analyses of the Great Depression and Stalinism, it explores the theories developed to explain the "long boom" in Western capitalism after the... more...

  • Manufacturing Miraclesby Gary Gereffi; Donald L. Wyman

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 56.00

    Few observers of Mexico and Brazil in the 1930s, or South Korea and Taiwan in the mid-1950s, would have predicted that these nations would become economic "miracles" several decades later. These newly industrializing countries (NICs) challenge much of our conventional wisdom about economic development and raise important questions about international... more...

  • Galbraith, Harrington, Heilbronerby Loren J. Okroi

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 38.50

    In a remarkably lucid and flowing style, Loren Okroi analyzes the ideas of three leading reformer-critics in the United States and places their main arguments in the context of the economic, social, and political history of postwar America. In so doing, he provides not only a skillful introduction to American social thought since the 1950s but also... more...

  • Labor Visions and State Powerby Victoria C. Hattam

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 36.00

    Why has labor played a more limited role in national politics in the United States than it has in other advanced industrial societies? Victoria Hattam demonstrates that voluntarism, as American labor's policy was known, was the American Federation of Labor's strategic response to the structure of the American state, particularly to the influence of... more...

  • Mullahs, Merchants, and Militantsby Stephen J. Glain

    St. Martin's Press 2014; US$ 23.99

    A thousand years ago, a vast Arab empire stretched from the Asian steppe across the Mediterranean to Spain, pioneering new technologies, sciences, art and culture. Arab traders and Arab currencies dominated the global economy in ways Western multinationals and the dollar do today. A thousand years later, Arab states are in decay. Official corruption... more...

  • Neuroeconomics: Hype or Hope?by Caterina Marchionni; Jack Vromen

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 135.00

    Is neuroeconomics a flimsy fad likely to pass without leaving a discernible trace in economics? Or is it a promising new field with the potential to enrich and improve economic theory? Neuroeconomics brings together a unique mix of perspectives ranging from philosophy of science to neuroeconomics practice to reflect on the promises and limitations... more...

  • The Scourge of Europe (Routledge Revivals)by L. V. Birck

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 140.00

    Written during the early 1920s, at a time when Europe was still recovering from the catastrophe of the First World War, L.V. Birck?s The Scourge of Europe examines the economic issues surrounding the existence of public debt, its history, and possible approaches to problems associated with public debt as they were being pursued by the great powers... more...
