Pouvoir et économie.Paris: Dunod, 1974 Stock Code: 141524
First edition, second impression (the year following the first), presentation copy to the British economist Lionel Robbins, inscribed on the half title: "Pour mon éminent ami le Professeur Lord Lionel Robbins en témoignage de notre amitié vieille d'un quart de siècle et toute neuve en hommage d'admiration et de fidèl sic affection 17.xii.77 François Perroux". An excellent economics provenance: Robbins, along with Keynes, was the leading British economist during the inter-war period; at the London School of Economics, he "dominated the economics department for thirty years and built it up to its pre-eminent position in British economics" (ODNB). In his autobiography, Robbins praised Perroux as among those who resurrected the international community of economists following the war: "I think of Francois Perroux whose tempestuous energy has done so much to transform and re-create the shape and international affiliation of economic studies in France" (Robbins, Autobiography of an Economist, p. 219).
