Capitalism With a Human Face is a carefully edited selection of Samuel Brittan's most important recent essays. It covers topics ranging from utilitarianism and the ethics of self-interest, to the principles of macroeconomic policy and how to price people into work without throwing them into poverty. The book will be controversial, for the individualistic ethic, which it is so fashionable to attack, is not merely defended but celebrated. This collection will be of special interest both to readers of Samuel Brittan's articles who would like a more extended treatment and those new to his work. A notable feature is a specially written introduction explaining how the author came to take up political economy and how he arrived at the positions elaborated in this book.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Any society with aspirations to egalitarianism would long since have abolished Samuel Brittan. He writes the best weekly economics column, elegant in style and provocative in content. He covers a range of subjects to a depth that should shame those of us who can cope only by concentrating on a narrow topic. He finds time to attend seminars where, inevitably, he asks the penetrating questions the speaker most dreads. He writes important books. He manages to display in the course of a few minutes more courage in challenging those to whom he might look for favours than most of us can summon in a lifetime. He is that rare British creature: an intellectual.'
