Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

The bible of economics, Smith's book laid the foundation for contemporary economic thought. Like Marx's "Capital" or Machiavelli's "Prince", the book also offered a radically new vision of society as a whole (one in which decisions are based on economic interest). It remains the bedrock of economic thinking, and this paperback classic edition includes a new introduction by Robert Reich, a critical essay by economist Edwin Canaan along with notes and a subject index.

About the Author

Adam Smith was born in a small village in Kirkcaldy, Scotland in 1723. He entered the University of Glasgow at age fourteen, and later attended Balliol College at Oxford. After lecturing for a period, he held several teaching positions at Glasgow University. His greatest achievement was writing The Wealth of Nations (1776), a five-book series that sought to expose the true causes of prosperity, and installed him as the father of contemporary economic thought. He died in Edinburgh on July 19, 1790.
