Malthus by Donald Winch( Book )

28 editions published between 1978 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,082 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With world population today edging over seven billion, and with projections for it to reach nine billion by mid-century, the ideas of eighteenth-century English cleric Thomas Malthus-and his grim prediction that war, plague, and famine are the inevitable response to overpopulation--loom ever larger on the horizon. But if Malthus is a familiar name to most educated people, few of us have read his famous and controversial work, Essay on the Principle of Population, and indeed few have but a sketchy notion of his ideas. In this Very Short Introduction, Donald Winch explains and clarifies Malthus's thought, assessing the profound influence he has had on modern economics. Concentrating on his writings, Winch sheds light on the context in which he wrote and why his work has remained controversial. Looking at Malthus's early life as well as the evolution of his theories from population to political economy, Winch considers why and how Malthus's writings have been so influential in the thought of later figures such as Charles Darwin and John Maynard Keynes
Adam Smith's politics : an essay in historiographic revision by Donald Winch( Book )

25 editions published between 1978 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 834 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For most of the two hundred years or so that have passed since the publication of the Wealth of Nations, Adam Smith's writings on political and economic questions have been viewed within a liberal capitalist perspective of nineteenth- and twentieth- century provenance. This essay in interpretation seeks to provide a more historical reading of certain political themes which recur in Smith's writings by bringing eighteenth-century perspectives to bear on the problem. Contrary to the view that sees Smith's work as marking the point at which 'politics' was being eclipsed by 'economics', it claims that Smith has a 'politics' which goes beyond certain political attitudes connected with the role of the state in economic affairs. It argues that he employs a consistent mode of political analysis which cannot be encompassed within the standard liberal capitalist categories, but can be understood by reference to the language and qualities of contemporary political debate, and of the eighteenth-century science of politics cultivated by Montesquieu and, above all, Hume, particularly as revealed by recent scholarship. A concluding chapter draws the various strands of the interpretation together to form a portrait of what Smith might legitimately be said to have been doing when he wrote on these matters
Vindiciae Gallicae and other writings on the French Revolution by James Mackintosh( )

14 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 744 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Vindiciae Gallicae and Other Writings on the French Revolution presents the first modern and fully annotated edition of James Mackintosh's most famous work, Vindiciae Gallicae, together with related writings on the French Revolution. The writings span the years 1791 to 1815 and trace the transformation of Mackintosh's thinking on the Revolution, beginning with his enthusiastic support of the cause, his later disillusionment with its violence and tyranny, and finally an increasing desire to distance himself from his earlier advocacy."--Jacket
Economics and policy; a historical study by Donald Winch( Book )

28 editions published between 1969 and 1972 in English and held by 665 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

That noble science of politics : a study in nineteenth-century intellectual history by Stefan Collini( Book )

29 editions published between 1983 and 2011 in English and held by 653 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this unusual and important work, three well-known historians of ideas examine the diverse forms taken in nineteenth-century Britain by the aspiration to develop what was then known as a 'science of politics'. This aspiration encompassed a more extensive and ambitious range of concerns than is implied by the modern term 'political science': in fact, as this book demonstrates, it remained the overarching category under which many nineteenth-century thinkers grouped their attempts to achieve systematic understanding of man's common life. As a result of both the over-concentration on closed abstract systems of thought and the intrusion of concerns which pervade much writing in the history of political theory and of the social sciences, these attempts have since been neglected or misrepresented. By deliberately avoiding such approaches, this book restores the subject to its centrality in the intellectual life and political culture of nineteenth-century Britain"--Publisher description

Selected economic writings by James Mill( Book )

27 editions published between 1966 and 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 481 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"James Mill was the consummate utilitarian economist and theorist: his numerous intellectual interests and practical pursuits shatter the net boundaries of modern specialist scholarship in social science.Mill's many-sided genius was primarily a product of the age in which he lived. The late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries saw a remarkable flowering of intellectual genius in Scotland in all of the arts and sciences, which gave the country a leading place in the broad European movement known as the Enlightenment, Mill being in fact only one of many brilliant men Scotland produced at that time.Mill's writings in this volume, first published in 1966, cover his development as an economist and are an attempt to assess his contribution to classic political economy. Particular attention is paid to the formative but less well-known pre-Benthamite period of his life. The volume opens with a substantial biographical assessment of Mill's life and work. The selections are specifically divided into four groups consisting of: early economic writings (""An Essay of the Impolicy of a Bounty on the Exportation of Grain,"" ""Commerce Defended,"" and ""Smith on Money and Exchange""); James Mill and David Ricardo (""Elements of Political Economy""); Mill on scope and method (""Whether Political Economy is Useful""); and Mill and India (""History of British India""). Donald Winch provides an introduction to each section that contextualizes the essays in Mill's own work and the economic thought of the time.James Mill: Selected Economic Writings is sure to be of interest to students of economic theory and social policy. One of the founders of utilitarianism, he adopted that doctrine to both British conditions and Britain's broader imperial pursuits.Donald Winch is professor of economics at the University of Sussex. He has authored and edited many books and papers on economics, economic theory, economic policy and economic history."--Provided by publisher
The Economic Advisory Council, 1930-1939 : a study in economic advice during depression and recovery by Susan Howson( Book )

19 editions published between 1976 and 2008 in English and Spanish and held by 414 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The experience of the Economic Advisory Council provides the relevant policy background to the Keynesian revolution in economic theory, and to the adoption of the principles of economic management in Britain during the Second World War. This study of this pioneering advisory institution against the inter-war setting of depression, financial crisis and recovery is based on government records, supplemented by other contemporary sources. The book deals with the political and economic origins of the E.A.C. in the post-1918 decade; the role of the Council and its committees of inquiry as the world slump began to make an impact on an already depressed British economy; and the part played by individual economic advisers in the dramatic events which led to the fall of the second Labour Government and Britain's departure from the gold standard in 1931. Throughout the nineteenthirties the work of the Council was carried on by the Committee on Economic Information, which helped to provide the National Government with solutions to the complex and novel problems of a post-gold standard world. In addition to assessing the significance of the E.A.C. experiment, the book reprints a number of reports and gives a guide to the relevant documents in the public archives
