    Title: "An Estimate of the Manners and Principles of the Times" and Other Writings
    By (author): John Brown Edited by: David Womersley
    ISBN10-13: 086597909X : 9780865979093
    John Brown (1715–1766) was a clergyman who achieved great but transient fame as a writer and moralist. His attack on Shaftesbury and moral sense philosophy, against which he employed utilitarian arguments and also arguments deriving from God’s benevolent intentions toward his creation, was published in 1751 and was later praised by John Stuart Mill. The central text of this volume, An Estimate of the Manners and Principles of the Times (1757), is a vigorous attack on the vain, luxurious, and selfish effeminacy of England’s higher ranks, in the wake of the loss of Minorca to the French at the opening of the Seven Years’ War (1756–1763). Brown repeated the usual complaints of corruption that had been raised during the premiership of Walpole and argued that public virtue had been undermined by a preoccupation with luxury and commerce. Estimate was printed no fewer than seven times within the first year, earning the author the name Estimate Brown. Alongside Estimate, the volume includes four other works by Brown: his poem On Liberty (1749); his Essays on the Characteristicks (1751), which is an attack on Shaftesbury’s Characteristicks; his Explanatory Defence of the Estimate (1758), in which Brown engaged to defend the work, to some modest extent, against his critics; and finally, a late work, Thoughts on Civil Liberty (1765). Two appendixes complement the texts: a brief tribute to Brown by Thomas Hollis (an Englishman who devoted his life to the cause of liberty and for whom this series is named), in which Hollis depicts Brown as a weak man who nevertheless possessed a measure of virtue and talent, and who fell among thieves in the feral literary and political circles of Hanoverian England. The second appendix provides Hollis’s own annotations to his copy of Estimate. The introduction, by David Womersley, places Brown’s writings and career in the context of eighteenth-century moralism and, naturally, in the tradition of British writing on liberty. The annotations will gloss now-unfamiliar words and explain now-obscure references to contemporary events, circumstances, and personalities.

    Title: A Concise History of the Common Law
    By (author): Theodore F T Plucknett
    ISBN10-13: 0865978069 : 9780865978065
    As always during its long history, English common law, upon which American law is based, has had to defend itself against the challenge of civil law's clarity and traditions. That challenge to our common law heritage remains today. To that end, Liberty Fund now makes available a clear and candid discussion of common law. A Concise History of the Common Law provides a source for common-law understanding of individual rights, not in theory only, but protected through the confusing and messy evolution of courts, and their administration as they struggled to resolve real problems. Plucknett's seminal work is intended to convey a sense of historical development -- not to serve merely as a work of reference. The first half of the book is a historical introduction to the study of law. Plucknett discusses the conditions in political, economic, social, and religious thought that have contributed to the genesis of law. This section is a brief but astoundingly full introduction to the study of law. The second half of the book consists of chapters introducing the reader to the history of some of the main divisions of law, such as criminal, tort, property, contract, and succession. These topics are treated with careful exposition so that the book will be of interest to those just embarking on their quest in legal history while still providing enough substantial information, references, and footnotes to make it meaningful for the well-versed legal history reader.
    About The Author:
    Theodore F T Plucknett (1897-1965) was an English legal historian. At twenty-six, he was appointed by Roscoe Pound as professor of legal history at Harvard Law School.

    Title: Adam Smith
    Sub-title: The Man & His Works
    By (author): E G West
    ISBN10-13: 0913966061 : 9780913966068
    E G West brings to life Adam Smith's first years in the bustling Scottish seaport of Kirkcaldy (and recounts Smith's brief kidnapping, as a baby, by gypsies). We follow young Smith as a student, watch his thought develop as Professor of Moral Philosophy at Glasgow, and enjoy with him the hospitality of David Hume, the Parisian literary salons, Johnson, Burke, Gibbon, and other giants of the era. West gives us a masterful summary of 'The Wealth of Nations'. Even more significant, West restores to eminence an earlier work of Smith's, 'The Theory of Moral Sentiments'. "If The Wealth of Nations had never been written," he asserts, "this previous work would have earned for him a prominent place in intellectual history." West takes particular delight in using 'The Theory of Moral Sentiments' to rebut Marx's assumptions about laissez-faire capitalism.

    Title: Adam Smith & the Wealth of Nations DVD
    By (author): Adam Smith
    ISBN10-13: 0865976082 : 9780865976085
    This DVD is an introduction to modern economics and the importance of free markets. The DVD is narrated by Dr Benjamin A Rogge of Wabash College and was prepared with the advice of Professors Ronald H Coase of the University of Chicago and E G West of Carleton University. From his childhood in Scotland through his university days in Oxford and on to his academic career, the film examines the events and influences that made Adam Smith the father of economics. The film delineates the original brilliance of Adam Smith's ideas that culminated in his masterwork, 'The Wealth of Nations'. Students come to understand the central concepts that Smith presented in 'The Wealth of Nations', and they see how those concepts made our modern world possible.
    About The Author:
    Adam Smith was born in a small village in Kirkcaldy, Scotland in 1723. He entered the University of Glasgow at age fourteen, and later attended Balliol College at Oxford.

His greatest achievement was writing The Wealth of Nations (1776), a five-book series that sought to expose the true causes of prosperity, and installed him as the father of contemporary economic thought. He died in Edinburgh on July 19, 1790.

    ISBN10-13: 0865977070 : 9780865977075

    Table of Contents:
    Introduction; The First Crusade; Communism and Fascism: Offspring of the War; The Collapse of Versailles; Debacle in the West; "Again and Again and Again"; Road to War: The Atlantic; Road to War: The Pacific; The Coalition of the Big Three; The Munich Called Yalta: War's End; Wartime Illusions and Delusions; Poland: The Great Betrayal; Germany Must Be Destroyed; No War, But No Peace; Crusade in Retrospect; Index.
    About The Author:
    Francis Hutcheson was a crucial link between the continental European natural law tradition and the emerging Scottish Enlightenment. Hence, he is a pivotal figure in the Natural Law and Enlightenment Classics series. A contemporary of Lord Kames and George Turnbull, an acquaintance of David Hume, and the teacher of Adam Smith, Hutcheson was arguably the leading figure in making Scotland distinctive within the general European Enlightenment.

    Title: American Commonwealth, 2-Volume Set
    By (author): James Bryce
    ISBN10-13: 086597117X : 9780865971172
    In "Democracy in America" (1835), the Frenchman Alexis de Tocqueville viewed the fledgling United States through the lens of political theory. A half-century later, the Englishman James Bryce recorded, not what he thought about democracy or America, but "the institutions and the people of America as they are." This work was first published in three volumes in 1888. This two-volume edition is based on the updated third edition of 1941, which encompassed all the changes, corrections and additions that Bryce entered into the previous three editions. Its expanded appendix includes Bryce's 1887 essay, "The Predictions of Hamilton and De Tocqueville", and contemporaneous (1889) reviews of "The American Commonwealth" by Woodrow Wilson and Lord Acton. Bryce presents the results of conversations with scores of Americans, and the close observation of the operation of American political institutions, including political parties and municipal and state governments.
