Bibliographic information


'Luckily for all of us, Bob Aliber has updated his monumental work - again. Since so much has happened since the last edition, there was much updating to do, and Aliber has done it well. Isn't it impossible for a book to be a basic, if not encyclopedic, reference work and yet still be sprightly written? Apparently not, for Aliber has done it again.' - Alan S. Blinder, Princeton University, US
