About this item

War and economic power have been interwoven in the thought of scholars since the beginnings of economic science, and views on the role of war in the economy have shifted dramatically as the world order has changed. The centenary of World War I has offered the opportunity for more increased reflection on this topic, particularly as the war itself stimulated new directions for both research and the development of theory

The scholars brought together in this volume are united in their commitment to exploring this classic subject from innovative and heterodox points of view. They offer a unique set of perspectives, which are united by three key themes: war as a test for economic theories; war as primum movens for economic theories; and war as turning point for economic theories.

This volume will be essential reading for scholars of the history of economic thought, international political economy and intellectual history.
