Petty's Place in the History of Economic Theory is an academic article, written by Charles Henry Hull and published in The Quarterly Journal of Economics in 1900. The article gives an overview of the life and work of William Petty, with a strong emphasis on the contribution of Petty to the development of early economic thinking. The article has reached some fame because Hull proposes in it the division of the writings of Petty into three chronological groups. The text was reprinted in Blaug 1991.

Roll skillfully encompasses the history of economic thought in minute detail from Plato and Aristotle to the post-Keynesian economists. That said, by necessity, the book is intricate, dense, and progresses slowly. An important work, a book I'll go back to time and time again, and an essential read for anyone interested in economics and politics. Albeit, one which is more like having to eat your vegetables as a child.

This was a short and concise introdution to the evolution of economic ideology. It was easy to read and provided sound examples. It is a very good starting point for an absolute novice to get a basic grounding, before going into more detailed texts or even the readings of the economists themsleves.
  • Hulis
excellent
  • Coron
Nice book.
  • Cherry The Countess
A great summary. Presents the material in a very accessible manner.

As some other reviewers have mentioned, the author is an outspoken Marxist. There's nothing wrong with being outspoken, but since the book is marketed not as a polemic but as a history book, I found the author's slanted perspective unwelcome. (No, the subtitle doesn't invalidate my point. If it read "A Marxist Perspective" instead, THAT would invalidate my point.)

Throughout the book the author clearly expresses to the reader which of history's economists he believes should be considered, and who should not. Two of my favorite Classical economists, Bastiat and Say, were quickly dismissed by the author because they were alleged to be on wrong side of the "class struggle." (whatever that means...) Many other economists were dealt with in a similar fashion. Hunt often goes on tangents about the economists' personal lives, sometimes taking facts out of context. For example, if the economist happened to have been a businessperson at one point (as many early economists were during the days before intellectuals could easily get cushy academic jobs) Hunt would condemn him as a "capitalist" or "bourgeois economist." Virtually any economist that favored the unhampered market process was quickly "debunked" and pushed aside without any discussion of the victim's defense.

Economists whom Hunt favored were given lengthy chapters all to themselves. Marx, Keynes (who was called a "conservative economist"), and a variety of obscure, radical socialist economists are showered with reverence and esteem by the author. In what can only be described as the climax of the author's phantasmal diatribe, within one of the later chapters Vladimir Lenin is, without a hint of jest, declared to be an economist. You read that right. The man who obliterated Russia's economy with his "War Communism" and ruined countless lives is considered to be an economist for his views on capitalist imperialism. (SPOILER: Lenin thinks capitalism is bad.)

I could go on, but I've spent enough time on this. I rarely write reviews, but after an entire semester with this book I've had enough. I regret that my socialist econ professor forced me to buy this. I don't particularly enjoy using the market mechanism to fund Marxists.

This book, authored by E.K. Hunt, was described in a website editorial which specified Baron Eric Roll as the author. I ordered the book in response to that erroneous description.
Hunt provides a much needed addition to the field of economic history and history of economic thought. Too much of economics has an ideological bent to the right, to find one to the left is, in itself, remarkable. In addition, Hunt does a very good job of covering all of the major thinkers and many of those left out of a traditional Ph.D. programs in economics.

Some of the reviewers of this text chastise Hunt for having a bias perspective. ALL of theory has a bias perspective. Hunt, unlike many in the "mainstream," at least admits to his bias in the beginning sections of his work.

Those in economics that believe themselves to be doing pure science without bias will not find the Hunt work of interest. Those in the field that recognize that economics is inseparable from politics will find it an interesting read. Anyone that wants breadth and depth to their understanding will find it necessary.
