MEDIA REVIEWS

'Rosen offers a provocative thesis, particularly concerning Hume and Smith, which critics will certainly have to answer.' - Political Studies Review

'There is a lot of material in this book that anyone interested in utilitarianism would benefit from mulling over. It presents interesting perspectives on some traditional themes, and succeeds in clarifying ... a number of issues that I am sure will still be discussed in many years.' - Economics and Philosophy
