Robinson, Joan. THE ECONOMICS OF IMPERFECT COMPETITION
London: Macmillan and Co. Ltd., 1954. Original black canvas boards; xii, 352 pp. 10th Edition. Stanley Engerman’s personal copy with his name in fountain pen on the flyleaf, numerous pages of underlining, drawn in graphs (at times in color), and insightful marginalia. Very good with bumping and wear to top and bottom of spine; paper yellowed (and, of course, with Engerman’s commentary). Joan Robinson (1908–1983), British economist and central figure in post-Keynesian economic thought. She was termed by the New York Times as “The Woman who shattered the Myth of the Free Market”. This book, is her classic work on monopoly, exploitation, and the market distortions caused thereby. Stanley Engerman’s underlining, graphs, and marginalia help us understand the development of his thoughts as applied to this classic work.
