The Enduring Tension
Capitalism and the Moral Order

Why does history record prosperity for the mass of ordinary people only within Western civilization and in the context of free markets? Donald Devine’s exploration of the enduring tension between capitalism and the moral order is the best answer to this question since Adam Smith’s. Like Smith, Devine shows the mutually sustaining nature of morality and economic freedom, and provides a much-needed clearing away of the confusion with which recent authors have befogged this essential relationship.

—Angelo M. Codevilla, Professor Emeritus, Pardee School of Global Studies, Boston University
