Reviews

The book is rich in both argument and application.--Alan Hamlin "Times Higher Education Supplement "
Not everything is a commodity, insists Anderson, and her brief should shake up social science technocrats.--Philadelphia Inquirer
Anderson is anxious to combat what she sees as a tendency for commercial values to invade areas of human life where they do not belong... A useful contribution to debate about the proper scope of the market.--Hugo Dixon "Financial Times "
In this rich and insightful book Elizabeth Anderson develops an original account of value and rational action and then employs this account to address the pragmatic political question of what the proper range of the market should be. Anderson's principal targets are consequentialism, monism and the crude 'economistic' reasoning which underpins much contemporary social policy... This is an important book... For anyone interested in political philosophy this is essential reading.--A. J. Walsh "Australasian Journal of Philosophy "
