    This four-volume set in the Critical Responses series brings together for the first time 19th Century responses to, and appreciations of, the work of David Ricardo. The collection covers the period from 1817, the year of publication of Ricardo's major work, The Principles of Political Economy and Taxation, to 1848, and represents the first and probably the liveliest period of Ricardo-criticism. The publication of John Stuart Mill's own Principles in 1848 marks an end to this period with the first great 'rehabilitation' of Ricardo following decades of searching criticism.
