G. West, M. Blaug, R. Roberts, M. Beloff, N. Barry and R. Harris, as well as volumes from the Institute of Economic Affairs’ historical catalogue. You may wish to consider a period as a visiting scholar if you are working on a book or other publication and you are willing to make a presentation to our staff and network at the end of your stay. Please, contact the Director of the Vinson Centre, Juan Castaneda, if you would like to become a visiting scholar or had any query on this programme.
