Serious Adam Smith Studies

Check out the International Adam Smith Society (IASS) HERE

Now in its 6th year with its Adam Smith Review (ASR) (annual), peer reviewed journal of authoritative, interesting and well written articles, symposia, and book reviews of recent Adam Smith scholarship, it is worth the annual subscription fee alone (members receive it automatically).

Contributions cover not just economics, but also moral philosophy, sociology, English literary aspects of Smith's works, classical history (a major interest for Adam Smith - he considered the fall of Rome in the 5th century a major defining event in the successor regimes that made modern Europe by the 18th century), and politics.

IASS helps to place Adam Smith in the context of his wider interests, not just his political economy.
