This is essentially the third edition of The Concise Encyclopedia of Economics, which originally came out in 1993 as The Fortune Encyclopedia of Economics and was updated in 2002 with the new name. The 2002 version of The Concise Encyclopedia of Economics is available for free online from the Library of Economics and Liberty http://www.econlib.org/library/CEE.html for those who do not have the means of purchasing the newest edition. The entries are arranged in two sections: the first for article entries, and the second for biographical entries. These sections are ordered alphabetically and include 160 articles and almost 100 biographies of prominent economists. Entries vary in length from a couple of paragraphs to a couple of pages. Each article entry includes information on the author who wrote the article and a short bibliography for further reading. The biographical entries include a list of selected works of the economist being discussed. A short appendix lists winners of the Nobel Prize in economics, chairs of the Council of Economic Advisors, and presidents of the American Economic Association. Compared to the 2002 edition, this one has approximately 34 new entries, and more than half of the entries have been thoroughly updated and revised. This edition also includes a new introduction and index. The encyclopedia contains a wealth of information that makes complex economics understandable in straightforward articles written by a variety of knowledgeable authors, ranging from Nobel Prize winner Gary Becker to financial columnists and numerous professors from around the country. A library that does not have this book in its collection could, of course, use the 2002 version online for free; but at such a reasonable price, this volume should be mandatory for any library supporting economics classes and is recommended for all academic and large public libraries. --Christy Donaldson --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Also, if you ever get a chance to hear the author speak at a lecture or presentation, don't miss it!
As far as economics books go, this is a great one to have! It's got everything you could ever want out of an economics book! I know this because one of the seven pages I read was the Table of Contents. The only down side is that it's still an economics book.
