9780130910509: The Making of Economic Society (Heilbroner, Robert L//Making of Economic Society)

For courses in U.S. Economic History, Principles of Economics, and American Business History.

With its roots in history and eyes on the future, this text traces the development of our economic society from the Middle Ages to the present, offering a balanced perspective of why our economy is the way it is and where it may be headed. It explores the catalytic role past economic trends and dynamics—particularly capitalism—have played in creating the present challenges we face, and offers suggestions on how we may deal with them most effectively in the future.

Review:


"On the whole, The Making of Economic Society in my view is the single best, short one-volume introduction to Western economic history in print. The chapters set out issues, problems, and various economic and social paradigms clearly. The language is graceful and always accessible to the general, nonspecialist reader. I am especially appreciative of its solid historical underpinnings and strong thematic format." — Jay P. Corrin, Boston University




"The strength of the text continues to be those things that make it a classic—Heilbroner's compelling grasp of the development of the world and its formative institutions, and his ability to present that story literally from the dawn of time into the millennium within barely 200 pages." — Susan Eisner, Ramapo College of New Jersey




"I first read the second edition of this book in a class at the University of Iceland and always liked it. When I started teaching Sociology of Business in 1994, I immediately adopted this text as my main text in the class." — Gunnar Valgeirsson, California State University, Fresno
