Published in 1778, <b>The Wealth of Nations</b> was the first book on economics to catch the public's attention. It provides a recipe for national prosperity that has not been bettered since, based on small government and the freedom of citizens to act in their best interests. It reassuringly assumes no knowledge of its subject, and over 200 years on still provides valuable lessons on the fundamentals of economics. This deluxe, selected edition is a stylish keepsake from the Capstone Classics series. <p> This edition includes: <ul> <li>An abridged selection of all 5 books for the contemporary reader <li>An original commentary offering new research and analysis by classic literature guru Tom Butler-Bowdon&#160; <li>A biography and chronology of Adam Smith's life and the events surrounding the original publication of the work </ul> <p> Today, <b>The Wealth of Nations</b> is still essential reading for any business or self-development library, reminding us that it is the ingenuity and drive of people, not governments, that remains the source of personal, national and global prosperity.
