The Wealth of Nations
Adam Smith’s masterpiece, first published in 1776, is the foundation of modern economic thought and remains the single most important account of the rise of, and the principles behind, modern capitalism. Written in clear and incisive prose, The Wealth of Nations articulates the concepts indispensable to an understanding of contemporary society; and Robert Reich’s Introduction both clarifies Smith’s analyses and illuminates his overall relevance to the world in which we live. As Reich writes, “Smith’s mind ranged over issues as fresh and topical today as they were in the late eighteenth century—jobs, wages, politics, government, trade, education, business, and ethics.” Introduction by Robert Reich • Commentary by R. H. Campbell and A. S. Skinner • Includes a Modern Library Reading Group Guide

Adam Smith: The Theory of Moral Sentiments
Adam Smith's Theory of Moral Sentiments (1759) lays the foundation for a general system of morals, and is a text of central importance in the history of moral and political thought. By means of the idea of sympathy and the mental construct of an impartial spectator, Smith formulated highly original theories of conscience, moral judgment and the virtues. This volume offers a new edition of the text with helpful notes for the student reader, together with a substantial introduction that sets the work in its philosophical and historical context.

Adam Smith's The Wealth of Nations
"Adam Smith's The Wealth of Nations" was the first comprehensive treatment of political economy. Published in 1776, "The Wealth of Nations" was originally released for a very specific audience; the British Parliament, setting clearly defined arguments for peace and co-operation with their troublesome colonials across the Atlantic. Today it is considered one of the most famous books ever written. Here, Smith's text is interpreted for the modern day world of finance, business and economics. Karen McCreadie's interpretation is not a substitute for the original; its purpose is simply to illustrate the timeless nature of Smith's insights by bringing them to life through 21st century examples. Given the state of our economy this brilliant interpretation couldn't be more timely.
