Co-authors commemorate Prof Philip Black

Posted by Melt van Schoor on 2016-03-08

The co-authors of a popular Economics textbook, Public Economics, on 29 February presented a copy of the sixth edition to Franki Black, daughter of Philip Black. She also received copies to present to the other children of Prof Black, a former professor of economics at Stellenbosch University. He passed away in 2015 and was the initiator and founder editor of the book, of which the first edition appeared in 1999 and which is at present widely prescribed in South Africa as an undergraduate and postgraduate text book. On the photo appears, from left to right: Prof Estian Calitz (Emeritus Professor, Stellenbosch University, co-editor and author), Ms Janine Loedolff (Publisher, Oxford University Press), Ms Franki Black, Prof Tjaart Steenekamp (Emeritus Professor, University of South Africa, co-editor and author) and Dr Krige Siebrits (Senior Lecturer, Stellenbosch University, co-author).
