A History of Economics: The Past as the Present
Galbriath manages to make economics interesting, entertaining, at times even exciting, as well as adding in a healthy dose of common sense often missing. He is clearly setting himself up against the 'aggressively dull' that make up much of the writing and theorising on economics. Whilst he does not cover every element in economics, or at times even every important aspect of economics, he manages to cover economics from Aristotle to the twentieth century in 300 pages, and to provide a mix of detail and overview that is informative and provocative.
