This collection of previously unpublished essays discusses the work of a select number of major intellectuals of the recent past (Joan Robinson, Piero Sraffa, Maurice Dobb, Michal Kalecki, Paul Sweezy and Joseph Schumpeter). These are not the figures who dominated established economic traditions; they stood, rather, outside the mainstream, acting as critics of the capitalist order and of the theory that sought to explain it. More than a study of leading intellectuals, the book also investigates the principal problems and theoretical inheritance which linked together theorists of otherwise disparate social and political contexts. Students and scholars of the history of economic thought will find many interesting ideas here. It will be a fascinating source of reference for many years to come. The contributors are: Geoff Harcourt; A. K. Sen; Malcolm Sawyer; Josef Steindl; Michael Lebowitz and Tom Bottomore.

Piero Sraffa was born in Turin in 1898. He was a professor at Perugia and Calgari from 1924-6 where he published his famous article attacking the Marshallian theory of the firm. However, his reputation is founded on his time at Cambridge from 1927 until his death in 1985. The main body of his work was his editing of The Works and Correspondence of David Ricardo, and eleven volume set, which was published between 1951 and 1973. In 1960 he produced his famous Production of Commodities by Means of Commodities which began a critique of economics that founded the Neo-Ricardian school. Piero Sraffa: Critical Assessments brings together some 115 articles on this great economist. Sraffa's work is notoriously eliptical and elusive and has prompted a massive and often heated critical literature. The work presents a detailed overview of the analytical writings on Sraffa from contemporary sources through to the present day. The articles have been chosen to cover all aspects of Sraffa's work, from the theory to the practical application. These volumes will be an invaluable reference for anyone studying the development of modern economics.
