Abstract

One of the objectives of the information disciplines is to study the universe of recorded information—that is, to study the documentary products of domains of human activity—and to come to understand such bodies of literature as social and historical phenomena in and of themselves. Cole and Kipp describe the development of the literature—including periodicals—of economics from the Renaissance to the twentieth century. The development of economic theory and understanding is discussed in relation to the development of the literature of the field.
