Tony Cleaver is Senior Teaching Fellow in Economics at the University of Durham, UKReview:
"As part of the Routledge series 'The Basics,' Cleaver (Univ. of Durham, UK) has updated his 2004 edition to include an engaging, informative first chapter on the recent worldwide financial crisis... Lucid writing and an international perspective differentiate this book from similar surveys such as Economics for the Rest of Us by Moshe Adler (CH, Jun'10, 47-5754), Naked Economics by Charles Wheelan (CH, Oct'10, 48-1001), and The Little Book of Economics by Greg Ip (CH, Apr'11, 48-4591). Recommended." -- M. H. Maier, Glendale Community College. (CHOICE August 2011)
