First published in 1986,The Economics of Alfred Marshallis concerned with the theories of demand, supply, market structure and income distribution which the celebrated author of thePrinciples of Economicsdeveloped while standing on the shoulders of giants. It is thus concerned with hidden assumptions, institutional constraints, tentative conclusions and blurred distinctions; for these are an integral part of the contribution of an economist who warned against spurious over-simplification of that which is inherently complex.

The economics of Alfred Marshall appears easy when in fact it is fraught with difficulties.The Economics of Alfred Marshallseeks to explain Marshall's theories in detail and to evaluate them in depth. The book attempts in that way to help the reader to gain a deeper understanding of an influential thinker whose insights, however difficult, continue to shed a great deal of light on the nature and workings of the economic system.
