This collection of twelve original essays commissioned by Britain's Royal Economic Society commemorates the 1990 centennial of the first publication of Alfred Marshall's Principles of Economics, one of the truly seminal works in the history of economics. The essays deal with various aspects of Marshall's life, work, and legacy and throw much new light on his thought and influence, placing the Principles in a fuller perspective. Sponsored by the Royal Economic Society
