Publisher Comments:

The 10th edition of Browning and Zupan's Microeconomics: Theory and Applications continues to motivate students and introduce them to current thinking in the field. This book appeals to students and instructors alike because of its accessibility, large number of applications, and the clear step-by-step manner in which graphs are introduced.

In this new edition, the authors have included more applications and more mathematical material to reinforce students’ understanding of basic microeconomic principles. This knowledge of microeconomic theory will serve as an essential foundation for any business major or for those preparing for a future career as a business professional.

Book News Annotation:

Browning (Texas A&M U.) and Zupan (U. of Rochester) present a microeconomics textbook aimed at undergraduate economics and business students. The focus of their approach is on understanding core principles of microeconomics and an emphasis on applications, particularly the conduct of market analysis. Alongside the standard materials, therefore, they also include four chapters devoted exclusively to applications using consumer choice theory, the competitive model, noncompetitive market models, and input market analysis, as well as some 120 shorter applications throughout the other chapters.
