Review:

"Joan Robinson' is a welcome and timely reminder of Robinson's intelligence, energy, passionate commitment to social justice, and tireless capacity for debate. It portrays two voyages of intellectual discovery: the evolution of Robinson's thinking, with a due appreciation for her successes and failures; and Kerr and Harcourt's own measured re-evaluation of the post-Keynesian revolution in which Robinson and they played central roles. The reconsideration of Joan Robinson's life and work is one important starting-point in the broad effort to understand the evolution of twentieth-century economics and to imagine a future for economic analysis outside the narrow confines of neoliberal dogma." - Duncan K. Foley, Leo Model Professor, New School for Social Research, External Professor, Santa Fe Institute, US.
 
'[The authors'] credentials are impeccable, their command of the subject matter impressive [...] they are to be congratulated for giving an enthusiastic but balanced, approving but not uncritical assessment of Joan Robinson's intellectual achievements.' - Maria Cristina Marcuzzo, History of Economic Ideas

Book Description:
