Henry George was greatly influenced by Adam Smith and David Ricardo. Henry George cited them in his most famous work Progress and Poverty from 1879 as the follows:

"What I have done in this book, if I have correctly solved the great problem I have sought to investigate, is, to unite the truth perceived by the school of Smith and Ricardo to the truth perceived by the school of Proudhon and Lasalle; to show that laissez faire (in its full true meaning) opens the way to a realization of the noble dreams of socialism; to identify social law with moral law, and to disprove ideas which in the minds of many cloud grand and elevating perceptions."

The book includes the major works by Adam Smith, David Ricardo, and Henry George to address economic concerns of land and its value, free trade, science of political economy, and much more.

Henry George’s analysis and remedy are directly from classical economic theory seeded by Adam Smith, David Ricardo, and John Stuart Mill. The giants had already decried the evils of concentrated land ownership, which they called “land monopoly”. George carried classical economics to its logical conclusion, and popularized that conclusion with stunning effect.

Henry George is best known for his Progress and Poverty that Albert Einstein designated George a "beautiful combination of intellectual keenness, artistic forum, and fervent love of justice". However, Protection or Free Trade by Henry George is a more significant work on the nature of free trade.

As one of the great American economists, Henry George’s economic thoughts are still relevant to American economic life, especially in building and evolving American economic foundation to knowledge based industries. The book is for the readers who are interesting in learning the deepest economic thoughts about the land value and rent by Adam Smith, David Ricardo, and Henry Gorge, three of the greatest thinkers on the planet.
