Adam Smith's contribution to economics is well-recognized but in recent years scholars have been exploring anew the multidisciplinary nature of his works.The Adam Smith Reviewis a refereed annual review that provides a unique forum for interdisciplinary debate on all aspects of Adam Smith's works, his place in history, and the significance of his writings to the modern world. It is aimed at facilitating debate between scholars working across the humanities and social sciences, thus emulating the reach of the Enlightenment world which Smith helped to shape.

The sixth volume of the series contains contributions from specialists across a range of disciplines, including Vivienne Brown, Maria Alejandra Carrasco, Douglas J. Den Uyl, John Elster, Niall Ferguson, Samuel Fleischacker, Christel Fricke, Lisa Hill, Duncan Kelly, Karl Ove Moene, John O'Neill, Maria Pia Paganelli, Alessandro Roncaglia, Carola Freiin von Villiez, and Jonathan B. Wight.

Topics examined include:

  • Smith and the conditions of a moral society
  • The fate of Anglo-American capitalism
  • Smith and Shaftesbury
