Frontier Issues in Economic Thought

A six-volume series
Neva Goodwin, Series Editor

Frontier Issues in Economic Thought offers a concise, accessible introduction to innovative new work that is, or should be, expanding the frontiers of economics. Each volume includes short 2- to 5-page summaries of over 70 key articles and book chapters -- a "Readers Digest" for heterodox economics -- combined with longer review essays by the editors, which comment on the summarized articles and other work in the field. Nobel Prize-winning economist Amartya Sen called the Frontiers books "a wonderful series which is making a major impact." The publisher of all six volumes in the Frontiers series is Island Press.
