The Third Duke of Buccleuch and Adam Smith

Estate Management and Improvement in Enlightenment Scotland

Brian Bonnyman

Published by Edinburgh University Press

In its exploration of the cultural as well as the economic roots of Improvement and in its assessment of a previously unappreciated aspect of Smith's career, this book has appeal for both specialist scholars and general readers interested in the Scottish Enlightenment and the culture of Improvement in 18th-century Scotland.
