This volume is a collection of intellectual biographies of economists, which the author has written over the last 16 years, focusing on their contributions to economics as well as their background and personal characteristics. There are four categories: accounts of Cambridge greats - Joan Robinson, Piero Sraffa, Nicholas Kaldor, Richard Kahn; oral histories of Lorie Tarshis, George Shackle, Kenneth Boulding and Richard Goodwin; memoirs of close friends of the author who have died; and shorter essays which include John Hicks, James Meade, Brian Reddaway, Arthur Smithies, Heinz Arndt and J.M. Keynes. The author has also written "Keynes and His Contemporaries", "Controversies in Political Economy" and "On Political Economists and Modern Political Economy".
