This innovative study, by one of the most progressive political theorists of his generation, challenges the traditional ways of constructing and celebrating the corpus of political theory.
Shapiro explores modernity via a reading of Adam Smith, confronting his philosophy and focusing on what he calls 'the Smith effect', the dimensions of which are integral to modern capitalist political economy and the construction of the social, political and moral within that system.
