Samuel Hollander is widely recognized as one of the most important and controversial historians of economic thought. This second volume collects together essays extending beyond classical economics, the subject with which he is most associated. This collection includes:
* studies in Scholastic, Smithian and Marshallian literature
* papers on the Corn-Law pamphlet literature of 1815, the post-Ricardian dissension, and the marginal revolution
* essays on T.R. Malthus, including four bibliographical studies
The volume also includes an autobiographical section and reviews of a broad range of important books published in the last thirty years.
