Summary

In the history of economics, women writers were all but invisible until a few decades ago. Although much work has now been recuperated, the writings on economics of eighteenth-century women authors have yet to be brought fully to light. This new three-volume collection from Routledge remedies that omission and makes key archival source material readily available to scholars, researchers, and students. This comprehensive compilation of eighteenth-century works by women writers includes several texts translated into English for the first time, such as an important critique on Adam Smith'¬"s Theory of Moral Sentiments (1759) by Sophie de Grouchy Condorcet. The collection is divided into two principal parts. Part 1 ('¬ÜThe Economy of the Household'¬") addresses the following topics: moral and economic conduct; women'¬"s position in marriage; gender equality; and household production. The second part ('¬ÜThe Economy of the Market'¬"), meanwhile, brings together texts that address education, work, wages, access to the professions, and issues of wealth and poverty more generally. Women'¬"s Economic Thought in the Eighteenth Centuryis a treasure-trove for all serious scholars and students of economic history. The gathered works are reproduced in facsimile, giving users a strong sense of immediacy to the texts and permitting citation to the original pagination. And with a detailed and comprehensive introduction placing the materials fully in context, the collection is destined to be welcomed as a vital reference and research resource.
