Adam Smiths Wealth of Nations

Stephen Copley and Kathryn Sutherland

Published by Manchester University Press

Texts in Culture MUP

  • Shows that Wealth of Nations is more than a classic economics text
  • Shows how Smith celebrated and warned of the limits and dangers within a society focused too narrowly on wealth creation
  • Shows that many of these eighteenth-century problems (inequalities of economic opportunity between men and women, and between classes; failures of state-funded education programmes) are still with us
  • Sets Smith's writings in the context of a late twentieth-century vision of the post-industrial West
