Abstract

Book Reviews and T. E. Cliffe Leslie—as they rivaled for the attention of John Stuart Mill. Cormac Ó Gráda examines the engagement of Irish immigrants with the Emigrant Industrial Savings Bank, chartered in New York in 1850, and concludes that even the poorest among the refugees from the famine managed to save in a drive to improve themselves. Part 6, “Abstraction and Reality,” contains three essays: Renee Prendergast on the political economy of Edmund Burke, Charles Hickson on Carl Menger’s organic view of institutions, and Antoin E. Murphy on John Law and canons of monetary orthodoxy. It is a pleasure to report that this collection is aptly titled. Each chapter makes a genuine and worthwhile “contribution”—something that cannot always be said about the Festschrift genre. Altogether they make a worthy tribute to an outstanding scholar, teacher, and gentleman. William J. Barber, Wesleyan University Critical Essays on Piero Sraffa’s Legacy in Economics. Edited by Heinz D. Kurz. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 2000. xiv; 458 pp. $120.00. This book, which grew out of unresolved issues from a 1985 conference (Bharadwaj and Schefold 1990), focuses on three questions: (1) Is Piero Sraffa’s reinterpretation of classical economics faithful to the original authors,
