Adam Smith: Life, Thought and Legacy is an expansive work about one of history’s most important thinkers and political economists. The 557 pages are divided into five sections and 32 chapters written by various contributing authors. The generous page count could have easily made this an unwieldy book. However, the editor Ryan Patrick Hanley, who is an associate professor of political science at Marquette University, has delivered a collection of well-researched chapters that stand alone, but also complement the others to create an impressive whole.
