This volume examines interactions between economics and other disciplines in the social sciences, including sociology, psychology, and political science, during the post-war period, when economics and the other social sciences emerged as discrete disciplines. Historians of ecoA?nomics who have examined the period have paid insufficient attention to the other social sciences, looking instead to the natural sciences. The Unsocial Social Science? aims to widen the conversation about the history of economics both substantively and historiographically. Reflecting on economic affairs since 1945, contributors explore a mulA?titude of issues, including poverty in the United States during the Cold War, a??economic sovietology,a? and the connection between economics and the behavioural science movement in the mid-century United States. Roger E. Backhouse is Professor of the History and Philosophy of Economics at the University of Birmingham and at Erasmus University Rotterdam. Philippe Fontaine is Professor of Economics at the A?cole norA?male supA (c)rieure de Cachan and a Senior Fellow of the Institut universitaire de France.
