Aspects of British Economic Thought 1890–1915
First Indian edition, first printing. Hardback in dustwrapper. 22.5 × 14.5cm, 221pp, with errata slip laid in.
Dr Jha examines the contribution of neo-classical economists in Britain during the period which he regards as 'The Age of Marshall'—the first twenty-five years after the publication of Marshall's Principles of Economics. It was during this period that Marshall's younger contemporaries were preparing the background, under his influence, for the Welfare State in Britain and for the Keyensian Revolution. The book is fascinating for the light it sheds on the interaction of economic events and issues with the reactions of economists, and for its clear demonstration that economic analysis does not proceed in a vacuum.
The book is in good condition. The dustwrapper has quite heavy edgewear and taped repair to the inside but is now within a protective sleeve.
