The Sociology and Professionalization of Economics contains essays on the social nature of economics as a science; on the origin and history of some of the institutions which have done most to shape the development of the discipline; and on economics as a profession. As with the other volumes in the series there is particular emphasis on the similarity and differences between economics and economists in Britain and in North America. The volume is divided into three parts. The first addresses issues in the sociology of economics, including possible applications of ideas from the soicology of knowledge and of science to economics and the importance of journals to the discipline. The second includes pioneering work on the establishment and development of such important institutions as the American Economic Association and the Royal Economic Society. The Book concludes with essays on economics as a profession with particular emphasis to the role of economists in government.

The home of more Nobel Laureates than any other institution, the University of Chicago has a unique place in the development of economics, fostering the work of some of the most influential and controversial economists of the twentieth century, including Frank Knight, Milton Friedman and Gary Becker. Today the Chicago School is seen as the single most important proponent of neoclassical price theory to explain observed economic behaviour, and of free markets, as the most efficient means of allocating resources and distributing incomes. However, as this collection demonstrates, economics at Chicago has been far from monolithic, even during the heyday of the 1930s and 1940s. This collection traces the development of Chicago Economics to the end of the Second World War. Each volume focuses on an individual or group of individuals who made distinctive contributions including: * Thorstein Veblen and the development of institutional economics * Wesley C. Mitchell and the Quantity Theory of Money * Margaret Reid and the emergence of Human Capital Theory * Henry Scholtuz and the development of quantitative methods * The Cobb-Douglas production function * Jacob Viner on both the history of economic thought and international economics * Frank H. Knight on price theory The set contains a general introduction, outlining the development of economics in Chicago during this period. Introductions to individual volumes provide biographical information on the economists in question and place the works reproduced in their historical and intellectual context.

Biography -- History -- Political Science -- Economics For over half a century, Canadian-born John Kenneth Galbraith (b. 1908) has been among the most visible of public intellectuals. His articulate and controversial best-selling books-including "The Affluent Society, " "Economics and the Public Purpose, " and "The New Industrial State"-and his very partisan liberal Democrat political and public service activities secured a place for him among the rich and famous of his time. He worked as an adviser to President John F. Kennedy, served as U.S. ambassador to India (1961-1963), and edited "Fortune" magazine during the mid-1940s. Among American economists of any era, he is rivaled only by Thorstein Veblen for the introduction of phrases that take on a life of their own in the literate idiom. Such Galbraithian phrases as "the conventional wisdom" and the "affluent society" have become familiar even beyond Galbraith's remarkably wide readership. No other economist of the twentieth century, excepting perhaps John Maynard Keynes, can claim so secure a place in the "belles-lettres" of the English-speaking world. This collection of interviews documents the long career of an influential economist and political philosopher who has spent much of his professional life in the public eye. Many of the interviews are occasioned by publication of his books and contain their key themes such as the importance of Keynes, the need to include power in economic thinking, and the neglected priorities of aesthetics, poverty, and the environment in affluent America. The interviews also indicate Galbraith's wide-ranging public service and his frequent hobnobbing with the political and intellectual elite. Through the collection, which spans over four decades, Galbraith's erudition, wit, and impassioned liberalism shine through, making this volume an essential companion to his works. James Ronald Stanfield, a professor of economics at Colorado State University, is the author of "John Kenneth Galbraith, " "The Economic Thought of Karl Polanyi: Lives and Livelihood, " and "Economics, Power, and Culture: Essays in the Development of Radical Institutionalism." Jacqueline Bloom Stanfield, a professor of sociology at the University of Northern Colorado, is the author of "Married with Careers: Coping with Role Strain." Her work has appeared in such periodicals as "Social Science Journal, " "American Journal of Economics and Sociology, " and "Review of Social Economy.".
