An Intellectual History of Jean-Baptiste Say's Political Economy


'Whatmore advances his clear and closely argued interpretation of Say through a most impressive range of textual evidence... This accomplished book will prove challenging and instructive to an extremely wide circle of historians of ideas.' -History of European Ideas
'An important contribution to a much bigger field... this takes us into the entire background of French Revolutionary republicanism.' -Times Literary SupplementRepublicanism and the French Revolution provides a new interpretation of political thought and political economy in France from the death of Louis XVI to the July Revolution of 1830. The clash between modern republicanism and other theories of governing societies, typified by the antagonism between French and British intellectuals, is the background to a thorough reinterpretation of the life and writings of Jean-Baptiste Say, the most famous political economist of the post-revolutionary era.
