This study analyses the influence that Adam Smith's philosophy had on his Wealth of Nations, and reveals the unity in Smith's extensive system of morals, politics, and economics. It concludes that Smith was motivated by a political ideal, which was moral liberalism.

Editorial Reviews

`Athol Fitzgibbon's excellent work is a most welcome addition to the "new" Smith canon that has emerged over the past few years ... His thesis is clearly and succinctly stated in the opening lines of the preface ... outstanding study ... Fitzgibbon's well-written work will appeal to a widevariety of scholars as well as the general reader. It is now the best synthetic analysis of Smith's system available and deserves a wide audience.'American Political Science Review
