Today Adam Smith, author of the Wealth of Nations, is associated with the promotion of self-interest and a defence of greed. Yet if Smith is actually read this is more a caricature than a faithful portrait. Berry offers a balanced and nuanced view of this seminal thinker, set against contemporary European history, politics, and philosophy.

Alex M. Thomas, Indian Journal of Human Development 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.

Sam Fleischacker, author of On Adam Smith's Wealth of Nations: A Philosophical Companion 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.
