"A fine book persuasively arguing that Smith is not about redistributing political authority but about the insignificance of political power in a market economy relentlessly driven by people seeking to better their condition. Gallagher gives us a lively, iconoclastic trip through eighteenth-century ideas and history."
--Isaac Kramnick, Cornell University
"I recommend [this book] as a pleasant and well-informed introduction to early eighteenth-century politics and related scholarship. It will be particularly useful for today's students in political studies who are so often underexposed to the historical dimension of the analysis of modern political ideas and practices."
--Douglas Long, Canadian Journal of Political Science
