    More Information:

    "...alhough nominally a handbook, it is really a complete collection of extensive treatises on evry imaginable topic of political and social economics, finance and administration, in which Professor Schonberg has called to his aid most of the prominent economists of Germany." [Edwin Seligman, review in Academy of Political Science, 1892.]

    Schoenberg (1839-1908) "Schonberg studied law and politics at the universities of Bonn and Berlin. After successfully completing these studies in 1860, he transferred to the civil service and was promoted to Gerichtsassessor within five years. Subsequently, Schonberg worked at the Seminar of the Prussian Statistical Bureaux. In 1867, he took up up the role of Lecturer in Political Economy at the Prussian Agricultural Institute in Proskau, where, among other things, he was heavily involved in the establishment of several agricultural cooperatives in Schlesien.

    In autumn 1868, Schonberg was appointed Professor ordinarius of Economics at the University of Basel. In 1870, he moved to the Albert Ludwigs University of Freiburg as an economist. Three years later, he moved again to the University of Tubingen, where, in addition to his role as Professor ordinarius in Political Science, he was also Chancellor for some years. Starting in 1887, SchÅ¡nberg edited the journal Tubinger Zeitschrift fur die gesamte Staatswissenschaft (Tubingen Magazine for the Entire Political Sciences) together with Albert Schoffle and Karl Viktor Fricker."
