A collection of some Coase's finest articles on economic theory and the history of economic thought. Although Coase is most commonly associated with the Chicago School, he spent much of the 1930s at the London School of Economics and several of the articles in the present collection pertain to that period, including an intellectual portrait of his former teacher Arnold Plant, who Coase credits with instilling "many of the lessons that later came to be associated with the Chicago School" (New Palgrave). Also included are essays on Adam Smith and George Stigler, as well as a number of biographical pieces on Alfred Marshall.
Coase was awarded the Nobel Prize for Economics in 1991.
