The Growth of Economic Studies at Cambridge: 1776-1860.
Rashid, Salim
History of Education Quarterly, v20 n3 p281-94 Fall 1980
Traces the resistance toward establishing an economics curriculum at Cambridge University from 1776 to 1860. Complex reasons include inertia, low intellectual standards, fear of being considered partisan, and avoidance of change during good times. The eventual introduction of economics was achieved only when wholesale reforms were enacted within the university. (Author/KC)
