Adam Smith in Context delves into some central components of Smith's thought, especially his moral philosophy, and challenges some commonly shared views. It combines philosophical, historical, methodological and economic issues of Smith's legacy, uncovering original interpretations of what Smith really said. It is an important contribution for those interested in Adam Smith as it proposes a different reading of his works by investigating the classical sources of his moral thought and the influences of his own time.

Montes is an extremely careful scholar, and his understanding of Smith is rich and deep.' - Samuel Fleischacker, Journal of the History of Economic Thought

'new and insightful interpretations on a wide range of issues related to Smith..This is a truly impressive work by a young and gifted scholar. Experts on Adam Smith will find new perspectives in each chapter. The scholarship is meticulous and masterful' - Jeffrey T. Young, St. Lawrence University in History of Political Economy

'Monte's book covers a broad multidisciplinary canvas and its main lines of argument are stimulating, ambitious and wide-ranging. It extends the field of scholarly debate in a number of areas and it provides numerous insights as well as some interesting critical responses to recent developments in the literature. It thus makes a significant contribution to a growing scholarly literature on Adam Smith.' - Viv Brown, Open University in History of Economic Thought Newsletter
