The topics covered include education, the role of women, trade unions, unemployment, public enterprise, the quantity theory of money, inflation and trade, benefits of free trade and dangers of protection. The material offers valuable insights into policy thinking a century ago, with a surprising degree of relevance to pressing policy issues today.

    "Since the centenary celebration of Alfred Marshall's Principles in 1990 scholars of his work have had a veritable feast of fresh material with Peter Groenewegen's magnificant biography of the'soaring eagle' at the forefront....This is a well-presented hardback volume which every library should carry on its shelves..." Ray Petridis, History of Economics Review
