For over 75 years, R.H. Inglis Palgrave's classic Dictionary of Political Economy stood largely unrevised. Under the skillful editorship of Eatwell (Cambridge), Murray Milgate (Harvard), and Peter Newman (Johns Hopkins), a thoroughly rewritten dictionary has been issued. This authoritative and comprehensive publication focuses on all aspects of modern economic thought. Only about 50 of the essays appearing in the original may be found among the 1916 signed entries, which include 655 biographies of economists past and present. The 927 scholarly contributors from around the world include 12 Nobel Prize winners in economics. Full, up-to-date bibliographies accompany the essays. Adequate cross-references, useful appendixes, and detailed indexing make this handsomely printed and sturdily bound set a worthy successor to Palgrave's magnum opus , which is still needed for historical material. Required by every library serving students and scholars in economics. Leonard Grundt, Nassau Community Coll. Lib., Garden City, N.Y.
