Itscoverage of syllabus is better than its rivals and its treatment ofthe economics and the mathematics indicates that considerablerigour is needed to do things properly." Martin Cripps,University of Warwick

"In this book the build–up in confidence is done gradually bymeans of carefully chosen examples."

"Throughout the book the approach to mathematics is rigorous,and excellent use is made of graphs and other figures."

"A valuable guide to the ways in which mathematics provides abasis for modern economics." Tony Whitford
