Eight papers on financial crises and eight on public goods make up the seventh volume of collected papers by one of the few economists who manages to be stimulating, original and entertaining most of the time and controversial always. As usual, prolific citations show the wide range of his learning. This useful pulling together of papers that enlarge on Professor Kindleberger's much-discussed ideas about the requisites for international economic order is further enhanced by some brief remarks on the difference between leadership and hegemony.
