Since economics emerged as a distinct field of inquiry, no other single factor has occupied so central an analytical role as labor. A review in the library journal, Choice, noted that this book "does for labor in the history of economic thought what Joseph A 5chumpeter's History of Economics Analysis did more generally for the whole of economics."Beginning with the origins of labor economics' in medieval times, the book discusses the primacy of labor in the thinking of classical economists, and its separation from mainstream economics in the nineteenth century.
