"The Glasgow edition was originally commissioned to celebrate the bicentenary of The Wealth of Nations, Smith's greatest work. But the project had and has a wider purpose. It is hoped that the most complete edition of Smith's works will facilitate perception of the fact that individually they form the parts of a single whole which embraces theories of knowledge and of communication together with the main components of ethics, jurisprudence, and political economy. This aim accords with Smith's own wishes as set out in the concluding pages of the first edition of The Theory of Moral Sentiments (1759)--a promise which was repeated in the advertisement to the final edition of 1790."-- Andrew S. Skinner, General Editor, and Professor of Political Economy, University of GlasgowNow complete in seven titles/eight volumes, this series is the first uniform collection of Adam Smith's writings. The Glasgow edition is published in hardcover by Oxford University Press. The paperback edition is published by Liberty Fund.The Wealth of Nations

Index to the Works of Adam Smith
Adam Smith was born in a small village in Kirkcaldy, Scotland in 1723. He entered the University of Glasgow at age fourteen, and later attended Balliol College at Oxford. After lecturing for a period, he held several teaching positions at Glasgow University. His greatest achievement was writing The Wealth of Nations (1776), a five-book series that sought to expose the true causes of prosperity, and installed him as the father of contemporary economic thought. He died in Edinburgh on July 19, 1790.
