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.

Henry George in Protection or Free Trade presented international trade from the angle of poverty, wages and unemployment. The book details the systematic dissertation of the effects that protectionist and free-trade policies have on the wealth of a nation and its individuals.

As opposed to protective prescriptions, Henry George arrives at a conclusion that is decidedly in favor or free trade as a solution to the ills of poverty.

The systematic dissertation of free trade in this book is still relevant to us today. The book is a must read for the people who need an essential understanding of theoretical foundation of free trade framework that is governing global trade today.
