Editorial Reviews

"Tabb's work should be consulted by economists who think political science might have something to offer, that political economy may be something more than an incorporation of institutions in general laws, and who share Tabb's emphasis on the social aspect of social science."
--Nicola Phillips and Timothy Sinclair "University of Warwick
