The basic desideratum of the present volume is to threadbare the
fundamental theories of economics and their evolutionary trajectory
in a simplified way devoid of verbosity and rigmarole. The traces
of economic theories have been analysed with reference to, inter
alia, their methodological foundations and historical genesis. Past
and present theories have been categorised under taxonomical schema
into major schools to properly appreciate and differentiate their
respective contributions. The historicity of some of the important
micro and macro theories have depicted in a very precise way so as
to keep the subject well within the area of bounded rationality of
the average reader. The final part of the study briefly
recapitulates the contemporary issues and changes in macro and
monetary economics, and also the substantive development in
development economics. It is believed that this little volume will
enable the readers to have a bird's eye view of the broad panorama
of economic theories both past and present. B.N. Ghosh, PhD
