John Law (1671-1729) is most widely known outside economics as a rake, duellist and gambler. This intellectual biography of the Scottish-born economic theorist and policy-maker shows him to have been a significant economic theorist when economic conceptualization was very much at an embryonic stage. It also explains his ultimate failure.

Antoin E. Murphy is at Trinity College,.Review:
"In this book [Murphy] corrects mistaken attributions and also delivers the most extended and comprehensive analysis of Law's thinking, delineating its evolution and ultimately giving it pride of place in the genealogy of Keynesian thought...This work fills a great hole in the English-language literature and represents a mandatory gateway for historians and economists alike"--Journal of Political Economy
