"Where the political aspects of human rights had taken two centures to explore, Smith's achievement was to bring the study of economic aspects to the same point in a single work. The Wealth of Nations is not a system, but as a provisional analysis it is completely convincing. The certainty of its criticism and its grasp of human nature have made it the first and greatest classic of modern economic thought" (PMM). The sixth edition is the first to have been published after Smith’s death in 1790.
