The sixteenth edition cover includes a photograph of a roof detail of a building in the Cyclades, a group of Greek islands in the Aegean Sea. The location of the building is especially appropriate, given that the modern word "economics" comes from the Greek oikonomikos, meaning "household management."
The photo highlights Greek architecture, which combines reliance on precision of order and the ability to break away from strict geometrical precision to create a more pleasing whole. That is exactly what we have tried to accomplish with "Economics". Our goal is to present the principles of economics in a precise, orderly, step-by-step way. There is great beauty, logic, and power in economic models - a fact that we emphasize throughout the book. But an overemphasis on economic theory in the introductory course renders the subject flat and boring and does students a great disservice. Time and again "Economics" breaks away from the models by examining real-world examples and institutional detail. These necessary departures occur not only within the main flow of the text but also in special applications chapters, the new Consider this pieces, the Last Word minireadings, and the supporting web content. All this adds up, we think, to a more pleasing whole - in this case, a more realistic introduction to economics and the economy.
