Format: Paperback
Samuelson's "Foundations" may be the most important book on mathematical economics ever written. This remarkable book thoroughly treats every area of modern economic theory -- from international trade to portfolio theory -- in an elegant and concise manner.

Format: Paperback
If you have to get a review of this book from Amazon, you will find it considerably too technical and mathematical for anyone without graduate level economics. Nevertheless, it is one of the ten most important economics books books of the(previous) century
