Man's Worldly Goods – The Story of The Wealth of Nations by Leo Huberman, originally published in the 1930s. This is 'an attempt to explain history by economic theory, and economic theory by history'. It charts the path from feudalism to capitalism, and then looks beyond capitalism to a perceived socialist future. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive.

No one can read this book and ever again say that history is dull.

Harold Laski

An exciting blend of economic history and economic theory . . . Brilliantly and lucidly written with a wealth of scholarly references.

The Economist (London)

The most successful attempt to date to humanize the dismal Science and link the history of man to the history of economic theory.

The New Yorker
