"Levy's scintillating volume offers a startlingly original reinterpretation ofCarlyle's well-known characterization of classical economics as 'the dismal science'. Levy examines the positions of classical economics and its nineteenth-century Victorian literary critics, as seen through the specific prism of the antislavery debate. He argues, persuasively in my view, that it was the economists, and not the poets, who were the 'true friends of humanity. '" Nathan Rosenberg Not Price Clipped. Pristine, no wear.
