Abstract

A Biographical Dictionary of Dissenting Economists. Edited by Philip Arestis and Malcolm Sawyer. 2d ed. Cheltenham, U.K.: Edward Elgar, 2000. xiv; 722 pp. $225.00. I reviewed the first edition of this dictionary when it appeared in 1992. The changes to that edition seem quite modest. As with the first, the second contains a combination of autobiographical and biographical entries, the latter generally (although not always) dealing with those deceased. Slightly over a half of the entries are autobiographical. The editors state that many of the previous entries have been updated, but do not indicate which or how many. A quick checking did find that most of the autobiographical entries have been brought up to date with references to recent work, although in some cases the changes are very minor. A small number of contributors of autobiographical entries to the first edition have since passed away, and in most of these cases, but for some reason not all (see the entries on Adolph Lowe and Alec Nove), the editors have added a note and references to published appreciations of the individual’s life and work.
