Abstract

Les traditions économiques françaises (1848–1939). Edited by Pierre Dockès, Ludovic Frobert, Gérard Klotz, Jean-Pierre Potier, and André Tiran. Paris: CNRS Éditions, 2000. 1001 pp. $52.00. This mammoth collection of sixty-seven essays has been selected from the papers presented at the 1997 conference held by the Association Charles Gide pour l’Étude de la Pensée Économique in Lyons. This volume is hence an imposing testimony to the vigor and popularity of the history of thought in French universities. France undoubtedly hosts one of the largest populations of historians of thought; the discipline is still compulsory in the B.A. program; there is a steady, yearly stream of dissertations; and half a dozen or so centers are entirely devoted to research in the field. For more than a decade, systematic efforts have been undertaken to revisit and reedit great names in French economics. The masterly edition of Léon Walras’s Œuvres économiques complètes is nearing completion, and the first volume of Jean-Baptiste Say’s Works and Correspondence is about to be published (both by the dynamic Walras Centre in Lyons).
