Abstract

Roger Backhouse's book The Ordinary Business of Life is a comprehensive history of economic thought, from the ancient Greeks to the present day. It will be useful both to specialist economists and to people with a smattering of economic ideas who want to fill in the historical gaps. Backhouse's book provides much of the material for anyone brave enough to tackle the big issues.
