About this book
This valuable and engaging new book bears eloquent testimony to A.P. Thirlwall's substantial contribution to economics over the last 40 years. The volume does not attempt to provide a comprehensive review of such a prolific figure, but rather demonstrates the considerable influence that his work on economic theory has had on his contemporaries, and the profession as a whole.
