Economics is a broad and diverse discipline but most economics books only cover one way of thinking about the economy and how to study it. This book provides an accessible introduction to 12 different approaches to economics: from Feminist and Ecological, to Marxist and Behavioural. Each chapter has been written specially for this book by leading experts in their field and aims to introduce the reader to an alternative approach to studying economics.
It is a ready-made companion text for students and teachers who want more exposure to the range of critical perspectives and new ideas within economics, not normally touched upon at the undergraduate level, and encapsulates our campaign; that students are better served when they are presented with a spectrum of economic ideas rather than just the dominant paradigm.
