Description - The Political and Economic Writings of Daniel Defoe by J. A. Downie
Defoe's writings on politics and economic affairs are of great significance. Highly influential in their own day, they have constantly been drawn upon by modern political, social, and economic historians, as well as by literary scholars. These writings, however, are not only very numerous but, in very many cases, have never been reprinted and often exist only in a small handful of surviving copies; to all intents and purposes they have hitherto been unavailable to the majority of scholars. This extensive selection, running to almost 100 works, reflects the many facets of Defoe's economic and political thought, and will for the first time make these writings available in well-edited, scholarly texts. Each volume includes an individual introduction and full explanatory and textual notes.
