CHOICE Outstanding Academic Title 2008

"Much has changed in the latest incarnation of this dictionary. ...More than 1,500 economists contributed almost 1,900 signed entries; more than 1,000 of the entries are new or 'heavily revised' and expanded. Along with the descriptions of economic method from earlier editions, this edition includes much information on 'what those methods have found.' It also offers new emphasis on advances that have occurred in microeconomics, Bayesian theory, game theory, and behavioral, international, and experimental economics. ...A regularly updated online version of the dictionary is available, with site license pricing based on institution type and FTE. Summing Up: Highly recommended." - CHOICE
