Reviews

The book certainly delivers on being a "stimulating and accessible account" of Smith's context and work and therefore every library must acquire a copy. * Alex M. Thomas, Indian Journal of Human Development *
Christopher Berry provides a clear and thorough guide to all of Adam Smith's major works, as well as their social and intellectual context. The level of detailed attention, to texts and issues, is indeed remarkable, given the brevity of the book. This is a first-rate introduction, which has something to offer to college students and seasoned scholars alike. * Sam Fleischacker, author of On Adam Smith's Wealth of Nations: A Philosophical Companion *
