Peter Groenewegen is one of the world's foremost scholars of eighteenth century economics - the era that saw the effective 'mainstreaming' of the discipline in the work of Smith, Turgot and Quesnay. This collection of essays amounts to the definitive guide to eighteenth century economics and is a must for any economist's bookshelves. Eighteenth Century Economicsrepresents four decades of Peter Groenewegen's research of that period. Presented in chronological order, the essays read not only as an authoritative summary of that period, but also as a guide to the evolution of Groenewegen's writings down the years. There can be no doubt that this book is truly indispensable to any serious economist and will prove a valuable resource for students of the history of economic thought.
