New historical resources online – History of Economic Thought (Routledge)

The Helsinki University Library had an trial on Routledge Historical Resources online: History of Economic Thought last year. Now this resource has been purchased.

History of Economic Thought is an online platform that brings together the best and most relevant scholarship from Taylor & Francis, its imprints, and its authors. It is the second project in the new Routledge Historical Resources online programme.

The resource covers the fascinating subject of the history of economic thought over the period 1700–1914. It contains an extensive range of primary and secondary resources, including full books, selected chapters, and journal articles, as well as new thematic essays, and subject introductions on key themes. There is also a video introduction to the subject from Heinz D. Kurz, one of the academic editors of the History of Economic Thought.
