50th Anniversary SCCTC

The Book

In 2022, Cambridge University Press is publishing a 50th anniversary edition of Geoff Harcourt’s Some Cambridge Controversies in the Theory of Capital. The book has a new preface by Geoff, and two afterwords, preceded with this introduction:

You have before you CUP’s 50th anniversary edition of Geoff Harcourt’s Some Cambridge Controversies in the Theory of Capital. The book is worthy of republication, and if the reader is not convinced by the text alone, these afterwords offer an explanation.

Tiago Mata’s essay is a study of the book’s global career Some Notes on the Life of a Book, tracing its reach in terms of geography and in terms of readerships.

Avi J. Cohen’s essay, Who is (Your) Geoff Harcourt?, addresses the role of the man in shaping how we think about economics and its history, and in influencing new generations of economists.

You will have to wait for the book to read Geoff’s preface!
