`[An] admirable dictionary … invaluable … The 5,000-odd entries are very well cross-referenced and meticulously alphabetised. A special word of praise is due for the biographical entries … it opens the doors towards real in-depth information. The use of the Economic Journal classification for the index is a great merit … The author is to be congratulated.' - - Library Association Record
`An extremely impressive reference work … Coverage is extremely comprehensive and it is difficult to fault the selection of topics. Entries are liberally illustrated to graphs, models and diagrams, which add understanding to the text, and are supported by extensive cross-references and suggested seminal readings on many key concepts.' - Reference Reviews
`It furthers Rutherford's hopes that the dictionary is `a solace for the perplexed, a guide for the scholar and a map of a new terrain for the general reader.' Recommended for all libraries serving readers of international economic news.' - Choice
