Biographical Sketch:

Roy Weintraub was trained as a mathematician though his professional career has been as an economist. In recent years his research and teaching activities have focused upon the history of the interconnection between mathematics and economics in the twentieth century. This work, in the history of economics, has helped shape the understanding of economists and historians: his General Equilibrium Theory (1985), Stabilizing Dynamics (1991) and Toward a History of Game Theory (1992) have charted the transformation of economics from a historical to a mathematical discipline. He is the author of six books, editor of another, and has published numerous articles in professional journals and edited volumes. His books have been variously translated into Japanese, Chinese, French, Spanish, and Italian. Currently he is Associate Editor of the journal History of Political Economy and Co-Editor of the book series Science and Cultural Theory.
