Abstract

The picture Robert Whaples has painted is certainly grim. Economic history is not just neglected, but shunned—or worse yet, despised—by most historians. Meanwhile, in economics departments, where the majority of economic historians now reside, the field is marginalized and, in the long run, doomed to extinction.
