Advanced macroeconomics can seem a daunting prospect. Complex and poorly defined, infected with a variety of conflicting approaches, it is difficult for the student to get an overall picture of what there is and how it fits in. Foundations of Modern Macroeconomics is aimed at getting around this fundamental problem: it deals with all the major topics, summarizes the important approaches, and gives students a coherent angle on all aspects of macroeconomic thought. Each chapter deals with a separate area of macroeconomics, and each contains a summary section of key points and a further reading list, enabling the student to check what has been learnt and investigate further in other books.

Review from previous edition: "This book will be an extremely valuable addition to the reading list for core graduate macroeconomics courses. It provides a fair and balanced account of the different schools of macroeconomic thought and the current state of the discipline. A large number of
topics are treated; the sections which cover technical material are particularly praiseworthy. The authors convey a sense of enthusiasm about the subject and show that macroeconomics can, indeed, be exciting."
--Professor John Fender, University of Birmingham
"This is a good addition to the textbook market. The coverage of topics is comprehensive and it takes students from an intermediate to graduate level with commendable ease."
--Shaun Hargreaves Heap, University of East Anglia
