About this book


J.A. Hobson has not always received the attention he deserves. This collection of essays, drawn from the conference to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of his death, will go a considerable way in rectifying this situation. This volume contains contributions from many of the leading scholars on Hobson. They are writing on a wide range of subjects from political theory, moral philosophy, imperialism, international relations to economics.
