After Adam Smith:
A Century of Transformation in Politics and Political Economy
Murray Milgate & Shannon C. Stimson

Book Description | Table of Contents
Chapter 1 [in PDF format]


"[T]horough and stimulating . . . readers unfamiliar with these debates can glean a great deal from [Milgate and Stimson]."--Gavin Kennedy, Adam Smith's Lost Legacy

"This work represents the best of contemporary scholarship on the history of political, economic, and social thought. A signal contribution of this book is the demonstration of how far Smith's original vision was from the image that has been conveyed in so much of the secondary literature and which has come to inform contemporary views of markets and politics. Milgate and Stimson have provided an indispensable resource for thinking through the issues manifest in the recent revival of concerns with political economy and its significance for democratic theory."--John G. Gunnell, University at Albany, State University of New York

"After Adam Smith is a superior piece of scholarship, engagingly written and impressively erudite. Milgate and Stimson are first-rate historians of economic ideas."--Ian Shapiro, Yale University

"This is a fascinating and elegant study of the development of political economy and its relationship to political thought. It is a major contribution to economic and political theory, and to the often neglected but hugely important intersections between the two. It tells a compelling and original story, based on extensive scholarship as well as acute competence in economics."--Hannah Dawson, University of Edinburgh
