An Encyclopedia Of Macroeconomics
The Encyclopedia of Macroeconomics is an authoritative and invaluable reference source on macroeconomics, which embraces definitions of terms and concepts, conflicting ideological approaches and the contributions of major thinkers. Comprehensive in scope, it contains over 300 short entries and more than 100 specially commissioned main entries from an internationally renowned group of scholars.
The alphabetically ordered entries will be useful both as a basic reference source and a provocative stimulus for further reading. The Encyclopedia will soon be established as a leading reference source on macroeconomics that will both enlighten students and be highly valued by scholars and teachers of economics.
Teachers of macroeconomics are already obliged to Snowdon and Vane (and Wynarczyk) for their success in persuading our students that this is a subject where they will find a lively ongoing debate on vital issues and not just a compilation of exam exercises. Their new Encyclopedia will be a splendid supplement not only to their own but to anybodys textbook. Many of the short essays are little gems. It will be a rare teacher who does not himself (herself) find a lot to learn from browsing in it.

The editors of this volume already have a number of innovative and useful texts and
essay collections (1994, 1997, 1999) to their credit. Their Encyclopedia of Macroeconomics
is comparably valuable as a basic reference book for 21st Century students and teachers.
