about

This book makes an innovative link between classical liberalism and questions of international economic order. The author begins with an outline of classical liberalism as applied to domestic economic order. He then surveys the classical liberal tradition from the Scottish Enlightenment to modern thinkers like Knight, Hayekn and Viner. Finally, he brings together the insights of thinkers in this tradition to provide a synthetic overview of classical liberalism and international economic order.
The author's deployment of classical liberalism strikes a different note to other 'liberal' interpretations in economics and political science. In particular, classical liberalism points to the domestic preconditions of international order, and advocates unilateral liberalisation in the context of an institutional competition between states.

Editorial Reviews

"The book will prove an invaluable resource for a growing community of scholars convinced that classical liberalism is far richer than the static, equilibrium models of "homo economicus that pervade neoclassical economics today. If contemporary economics is to be faulted for reductionism and economism, as Sally convincingly argues, the book establishes beyond a doubt that those sins are not to be attributed to its classical liberal forefathers. "Perspectives on Social Science, Fall 2000, Volume 29, Number 4.""Provides a synthesis of ideas on classical liberalism and international economic order."-"Journal of Economic Literature
