Critique: 'The key impact that the book has is the clarity and readability of the con- tributions. All the pieces are highly informative and a pleasure to read.' -- K. Lawler, Economic Issues 'It was Woody Allen who said "economics is about money and why it is good". Dipping into this book will let you see why it is good!' -- Christine D. Reid, University of Strathclyde, UK 'Although this excellent encyclopedia is focused toward intermediate undergraduates, postgraduates, and lecturers in macroeconomics, it is easy for any reader to use. Highly recommended.' -- J.C. Tucker, Choice '... truly a valuable addition to the materials on the area of study ... this work will be useful in college and university reference collections.' -- Shannon Graff Hysell, American Reference Books Annual 2003 'Brian Snowdon and Howard Vane are the premier travel writers of modern macroeconomics. In a series of interviews, anthologies, and surveys, they have explored the range of macroeconomic thinking and brought back edifying and entertaining tales of their travels. Now, in the Encyclopedia of Macroeconomics they have assembled a superlative detailed guidebook to the macroeconomic landscape. A useful reference book for all economists - broad in scope, and well written by distinguished contributors.' -- Kevin D. Hoover, University of California, Davis, US '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 anybody's 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.' -- Axel Leijonhufvud, University of Trento, Italy '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.' -- Robert W. Clower, University of South Carolina, US, Brasenose College, Oxford, UK and University of California, Los Angeles, US
