Business Cycles and Depressions: An Encyclopedia

"Includes 327 original articles on every major aspect of business cycles, fluctuations, financial crises, recessions, and depressions. The articles, which range from macroeconomic theory to econometrics to the historical record, are generally up-to-date, clear and to the point. Most entries will be accessible to students, but are informative enough to benefit almost any professional, as well. Each includes a bibliography. A seven-page appendix presents international data detailing business cycle turning points and durations. Perhaps the highlight of the volume is a ten-page entry, 'Business Cycles' by Victor Zarnowitz, which surveys the entire field of business cycle research and is quoted above."--Review at EH.NET, by Robert Whaples, Department of Economics, Wake Forest University. Also includes biographies of dozens of economists.
