A. W. Coats has made unique contributions to the history of economic thought, the sociology of economics, and economic methodology. This newest volume in the series British and American Economic Essays is the first to draw together a substantial portion of his work on the sociology and professionalization of economics. This volume contains the work for which Coats is perhaps most widely known. It gathers his essays on the social nature of economics as a science, the origin and history of some of the institutions which have done the most to shape the development of the discipline, and the issue of economics as a profession. As with the other volumes in the series, there is a particular emphasis on the similarity and differences between economics and economists in Britain and in North America.
