The Transition to Radical Political Economics

Show Summary Details


Simon Rottenberg, who was hired from Duke University to replace Kindahl as Department head, resigned from the head position during the spring of his first year in office. Tensions were raw and the Department was in turmoil. The provost then appointed the Dean of the Faculty of Social and Behavioral Sciences, a political scientist, as acting head of the Economics Department. And it was this dean who added six radical political economists to the Department's faculty in addition to several other appointments. Subsequently the Dean relinquished his acting head position and Norman Aitken became Department chair.
