27 editions published between 1986 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 583 libraries worldwide
First published in 1986, The Economics of Alfred Marshall is concerned with the theories of demand, supply, market structure and income distribution which the celebrated author of the Principles of Economics developed 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

Theories of collective action : Downs, Olson, and Hirsch by David A Reisman( Book )
15 editions published between 1989 and 1990 in English and held by 363 libraries worldwide
Individuals make decisions but they do not do so in a social vacuum. The goods they buy are frequently status-symbols in a zero-sum game which some will win and some must lose. Their consumption of commodities is subject to the constraint that what one can do, all cannot. The pressure of coalitions and interest groups, the self- interest of politicians and bureaucrats may all work against a solution being found for some of the most urgent social and economic problems of our times. These problems form the centrepiece of the economic approach to social interaction that has been pioneered by Anthony Downs, Mancur Olson and Fred Hirsch. This book seeks to examine and evaluate their important theories of collective action
The political economy of health care by David A Reisman( Book )
18 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and held by 262 libraries worldwide
Health care is a social concern, closely connected to the pursuit of collective goals. That is why some have said that mortality and morbidity, too important to be left to the individual and the market, are properly the focus for public policy. One reason for intervention might be equity: the nation might take the view that none of its citizens, irrespective of economic status or geographical location, ought to be denied adequate access to medical attention. Another reason might be economy: the cost of care is rising and a rational society will want to ensure that the rise is not excessive. A third reason might be efficacy: scarce inputs should not be wasted, and that means economic analysis as well as scientific testing in order to identify value for money. The Political Economy of Health Care examines the potential contribution of state intervention to health care. Impartial and unbiased, it reaches the conclusion that a wide range of differing opinions must be carefully considered if informed debate is ever to lead to consensus in this complex, confusing but vitally important area of social life

10 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 246 libraries worldwide

Economic thought and political theory by David A Reisman( Book )
12 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 242 libraries worldwide
People live by ideas which help them to make sense of their experiences. Yet different people live by different ideas. Without an attempt to communicate and comprehend, they would at best be unable to share, at worst be obliged to fight. This book is concerned with communicating and comprehending. It takes the view that ideas matter and that a dialogue with alternative worldviews is a civilised exercise in tolerance. Economic Thought and Political Theory, concentrates on the ideas of Plato, Steuart, Mill, Schumpeter, Hayek, Buchanan, the Catholic social economists and the property-rights tradition. The focus is dual: the market and the State. As interdisciplinary as the modern mixed economy, as contemporary as the search for middle way, Economic Thought and Political Theory will be of interest to all thinkers determined to find a good balance between individuals' autonomy and governmental leadership
Conservative capitalism : the social economy by David A Reisman( Book )
16 editions published in 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 241 libraries worldwide
"Conservative Capitalism explores the nature of the mixed ethos which makes the embodied past a recognisable part of the ever-acquisitive future in history's most dynamic and productive economic system. The book concludes that inherited conventions and the lies of network may indeed be useful inputs in the production-function that churns out the wealth of nations. This study of the essential relationship between markets and morals examines the work of thinkers including Smith, Burke, Marx, Durkheim, Shackle, Hayek, Polanyi and Fukuyama to put free enterprise in its social context. It illuminates the central questions of our age and will prove stimulating to economists, political theorists, sociologists and all readers interested in the history of ideas."--Jacket
Schumpeter's market : enterprise and evolution by David A Reisman( Book )
12 editions published in 2004 in English and Dutch and held by 228 libraries worldwide
"This volume will appeal to scholars, students and researchers who are interested in exploring the complexities of Schumpeter's vision and his intellectual system. It will be entirely accessible to non-evolutionary economists. Historians of economic thought will find this a valuable and novel interpretation of Schumpeter's work."--Jacket

16 editions published between 1982 and 1987 in English and Undetermined and held by 220 libraries worldwide
Health care and public policy by David A Reisman( Book )
14 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 218 libraries worldwide
"Health Care and Public Policy is a comprehensive and intelligible cross-disciplinary account of the objectives of health care policy (medical, social, economic) and of the policy-tools that government can employ (cost-benefit analysis, entry barriers, competition) in order to ensure that scarce resources are not wasted nor needy social groups deprived of basic health care."--Jacket
The institutional economy : demand and supply by David A Reisman( Book )
12 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 199 libraries worldwide

11 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 192 libraries worldwide
Democracy and exchange : Schumpeter, Galbraith, T.H. Marshall, Titmuss and Adam Smith by David A Reisman( Book )
11 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 189 libraries worldwide
"Democracy is the rule of the people. Exchange is supply and demand. Individualism, agreement, tolerance and choice are the underlying values that make possible the productive collaboration of the market and the state. This book assesses the theories of democracy and exchange of five interdisciplinary thinkers who tried to unite political and economic reasoning into a single theory of moderation and pragmatic management." "Democracy and Exchange is about the twin pillars of the consultative order. The subject is perennially topical and interesting, both in rich countries and in less-developed countries that are developing their own institutional mix. It also provides an in-depth analysis and comparison of the political economy of five seminal theorists: Adam Smith, Richard Titmuss, T.H. Marshall, J.K. Galbraith and Joseph Schumpeter." "David Reisman's book will be of great interest of academics trying to understand the history of economic, political and social ideas, institutional economics, economic sociology and social policy. It is a comprehensive and novel interpretation of two interrelated concepts, five difficult authors and some of the most pressing issues in present-day debates."--Jacket
Anthony Crosland : the mixed economy by David A Reisman( Book )
11 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 155 libraries worldwide
"Tony Crosland was the greatest thinker the British left has produced this century ... David Reisman is a bold man to write an account of Crosland's life and opinions while some of Tony's former acolytes are still alive, because they are an argumentative and stroppy bunch. His beautifully produced books are entirely successful in outlining Crosland's clear but often complex chain of reasoning. I imagine that they will amaze their general readership, especially the younger portion, who, accustomed only to the vacuous soundbite, must have forgotten that there was a time when political debate was intelligent and meaningful. Reisman has also accomplished the much more difficult task of capturing the flavour of the man."--Brian Walden, Literary Review 'These two studies on the legacy of the only philosopher-king produced by the British left in the second half of the 20th century deserve to be required reading, at least in the present Labour leader's office.' - Anthony Howard, The Times David Reisman's two volumes of intellectual biography and analysis [are] the most careful and thought-provoking exegesis yet to appear.' - Ben Pimlott, London Reivew of Books
Crosland's future : opportunity and outcome by David A Reisman( Book )
11 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 142 libraries worldwide
Anthony Crosland, a member of Harold Wilson's cabinet and the author of The Future of Socialism, was immensely influential in seeking to modernise the ideology of the Labour Party, to put opportunity and empowerment, the fairness of life chances and the sharing of social experiences at its centre in place of nationalisation. The party's belated redefinition guarantees a prominent role in its intellectual history to the revisionists' champion. Though Crosland wrote when economic growth could be taken for granted as the basis for social reform, his emphasis on fairness and community, on educatio
