It is quite significant for the students of economics to study the development of economic thought from the Biblical era to the present day. But the available books by Indian and foreign writers on the History of Economic Thought are so comprehensive and interpretative that a common student cannot study them easily. Moreover the books of foreign writers do not deal with the Indian Economic Thought which has been prescribed in the syllabus of Indian Universities for M.A and Honors classes. This Refresher Course in ‘History of Economic Thought’ is quite different from other ‘Bazaru’ notes available in the market in three ways: (1) It gives a chronological development of different schools of Economic Thought in the world along with the due emphasis on Indian Economic Thought, (2) It is an simple and lucid language and, therefore, is likely to serve the needs of common post-graduate and Honors students of any Indian University, and (3) This Book contains the syllabus prescribed by different Indian Universities. Besides, the book includes the latest thoughts of foreign and Indian writers.

The chapter wise questions have been carefully selected and answered in a balanced and systematic manner, which can certainly guide students in a proper direction and towards their ultimate and real goal of life.
