From Our Editors

The third edition of this successful and widely adopted intermediate level UK macroeconomics text has been extensively and thoroughly revised and updated. The authors have ensured that the existing strengths of the tried and tested approach of Macroeconomics are retained, while the latest theoretical developments and policy controversies are examined. It provides the UK undergraduate with: - Traditional methods of analysis (IS/LM) as well as new classical and new Keynesian approaches; - An emphasis on the leading contemporary conceptual issues and an historical perspective on their development; - A highly developed and successful text with a non-US orientation that makes sense of the UK context for macroeconomic policy and debate.
