Summary
This new edition of The Life of Adam Smith remains the only book to give a full account of Smith's life, whilst also placing his work into the context of his life and times. Updated to include new scholarship which has recently come to light, this full-scale biography of Adam Smith examines the personality, career, and social and intellectual circumstances of the Scottish moral philosopher regarded as the founder of scientific economics, whose legacy of thought--most notably about the free market and the role of the state--concerns us all.--From publisher description
