I am cautiously pleased to announce that my recent illness seems to have abated and succeeded by a much more encouraging period of better health, such that I have been able to read and react to some serious reading on new aspects of Adam Smith's scholarship.
While it is early to be sure, I have been able to think more clearly than was the case these months.
This brings me to my current writing plans. Having worked on my 'Authentic Account of Adam Smith', May, 2018, Palgrave Macmillan  Springer (with the assistance of my daughter, Florence, who transferred my draft rough efforts into reasonable prose suitable for publication, which I wish to share with regular readers of my 'Adam Smith's Lost Legacy Blog' some news.
I am pleased to announce that I am starting on writing what may/ could be, my latest and last book on Adam Smith. 
No title has yet been drafted but it is envisaged to be on a theme regarding Adam Smith's perception of the social evolution of the growing 18th-century market economy, particularly on recent comparative perspectives of the history of several earlier episodes of the establishment, evolution and fate of distinctive market economies from the third century in at least three manifestations in east European and west Asian geographically located civilisations, and their shared fates long before they and their implications were noted in modern scholarship.
Many thank to those readers who sent to me their best wishes during my recent weird illness, now hopefully behind me.
