policies. ceptionally accessible and fresh approach to economics which will assist and hold the attention of undergraduate students taking subsidiary modules in economics. It is ideal for students following a wide variety of courses who are not going on to specialize in economics. The book assumes no prior knowledge of economics. It is packed with learning aids such as end-of-chapter questions, summaries, lists of key terms, and frequent use of illustrative material. This new book introduces students to some of the key concepts used by economists, and shows how economics can be used to analyse a variety of important social and economic issues. To this end, concepts are often introduced in the context of real world applications, and many of the macroeconomic themes are presented in the context of their historical development. Brevity has been achieved by including only those economic concepts which are the most useful for aiding students' understanding of real events and policies. 'the writing style, the level of the exposition and the structure of the book are all excellent. The way material is introduced and explained is very clear and I think that the book will be very accessible for the intended audience... The cases presented are good choices which are likely to prove interesting to students.' Dr Martin J. Carter, Leeds University Business School

Economics is a broad and diverse discipline, but most economics textbooks only cover one way of thinking about the economy. This book provides an accessible introduction to nine different approaches to economics: from feminist to ecological and Marxist to behavioural. Each chapter is written by a leading expert in the field described and is intended to stand on its own as well as providing an ambitious survey that seeks to highlight the true diversity of economic thought. Students of economics around the world have begun to demand a more open economics education. This book represents a first step in creating the materials needed to introduce new and diverse ideas into the static world of undergraduate economics. This book will provide context for undergraduate students by placing the mainstream of economic thought side by side with more heterodox schools. This is in keeping with the Rethinking Economics campaign which argues that students are better served when they are presented with a spectrum of economic ideas rather than just the dominant paradigm. Rethinking Economics: An Introduction to Pluralist Economics is a great entry-level economics textbook for lecturers looking to introduce students to the broader range of ideas explored within the economics profession. It is also appropriate and accessible for people outside of academia who are interested in economics and economic theory.
