Les plus grandes améliorations dans la puissance productive du travail, et la plus grande partie de l’habileté, de l’adresse,  de l’intelligence avec laquelle il est dirigé ou appliqué, sont dues, à ce qu’il semble, à la division du travail. On se fera plus aisément une idée des effets de la division du travail sur l’industrie générale de la société, si l’on observe  comment ces effets opèrent dans quelques manufactures particulières. On suppose communément que cette division est portée le plus  loin possible dans quelques-­unes des manufactures où se fabriquent des objets de peu de valeur. Ce n’est pas peut-­être que  réellement elle y soit portée plus loin que dans des fabriques plus importantes ; mais c’est que, dans les premières, qui sont  destinées à de petits objets demandés par un petit nombre de personnes, la totalité des ouvriers qui y sont employés est nécessairement  peu nombreuse, et que ceux qui sont occupés à chaque différente branche de l’ouvrage peuvent souvent . . .

A fiftieth-­anniversary edition of Ken Kesey's searing American classic. Boisterous, ribald, and ultimately shattering, Ken Kesey's One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest has left an indelible mark on the literature of our time. Turning conventional notions of sanity and insanity on their heads, the novel tells the unforgettable story of a mental ward and its inhabitants, especially tyrannical Big Nurse Ratched and Randle Patrick McMurphy, the brawling, fun-­loving new inmate who resolves to oppose her. We see the story through the eyes of Chief Bromden, the seemingly mute half-­Indian patient who witnesses and understands McMurphy's heroic attempt to do battle with the powers that keep them all imprisoned.­Hailed upon its publication as "a glittering parable of good and evil" (The New York Times Book Review) and "a roar of protest against middlebrow society's Rules and the invisible Rulers who enforce them" (Time), Kesey's powerful book went on to sell millions of copies and remains as . . .

Testing for a unit root is now an essential part of time series analysis. Indeed no time series study in economics, and other disciplines that use time series observations, can ignore the crucial issue of nonstationarity caused by a unit root. However, the literature on the topic is large and often technical, making it difficult to understand the key practical issues. This volume provides an accessible introduction and a critical overview of tests for a unit root in time series, with extensive practical examples and illustrations using simulation analysis. It presents the concepts that enable the reader to understand the theoretical background, and importance of ran¬dom walks and Brownian motion, to the development of unit root tests. The book also examines the latest developments and practical concerns in unit root testing. This book is indispensable reading for all interested in econometrics, time series econometrics, applied econometrics and applied statistics. It will also be . . .

Few writings are more often cited as a cornerstone of modern economic thought than those of Adam Smith. Few are less read. The sheer strength of his great work, The Wealth of Nations, discourages many from attempting to explore its rich and lucid arguments. In this brilliantly crafted volume, one of the most eminent economists of our day provides a generous selection from the entire body of Smith's work, ranging from his fascinating psychological observations on human nature to his famous treatise on what Smith called a "society of natural liberty,­" The Wealth of Nations. Among the works represented in this volume in addition to The Wealth of Nations are The History of Astronomy, Lectures on Jurisprudence, The Theory of Moral Sentiments, and Smith's correspondence with David Hume. Before each of Smith's writings Robert Heilbroner presents a clear and lively discussion that will interest the scholar as much as it will clarify the work for the non-­specialist. Adam Smith emerges . . .
