Robinson, Joan, 1903-The rate of interest, and other essays. Imprint: 
London, Macmillan, 1952. Physical Description: 170 p. 20 cm.

I came across and put on hold this collection in a used bookstore 
yesterday. I found quite remarkable for their clarity and 
forthrightness two essays--one on the labor theory of value and one 
on Marx and Keynes. I don't think either essay had appeared before in 
English; one had been published in Italian, the other in French, I 
think...Both appeared originally in the 1940s, I think. More details 
after I buy it. There was also a rather irreverant essay on Euler's 
Theorem and Wicksteed. But photocopies of these essays would be very 
helpful to undergrad economics students and non-economists, I think. 
They cannot be surpassed for their clarity and focus, though of 
course I disagree with Professor Robinson's conclusions.
