Views from the mainstream of American political economy. Ranging over almost fifty years, these papers--original papers, reminiscences, reviews, and notes--are divided into five sections: methodology; historical analysis; elaboration of a dynamic theory; current policy; and the evolution of economic doctrine. Mostly minor, but not uninteresting. No index. A paper reprint of the original Cornell UP edition of 1987. LaCapra (European intellectual history, Cornell U.) provides historically informed readings of eight major works of Stendhal, Dostoevsky, Eliot, Flaubert, Mann, and Gaddis. In each reading, he explores the question of how the text relates to its historical and literary contexts in symptomatic, critical, and possibly transformative ways.
