This is a text for college classes that I found difficult but educational. I read it before reading Wealth of Nations, thinking that I'd benefit from an introduction. I ended up finding Smith a much easier read than this, but maybe that's because I read this first.
Good basic overview of history of economic thought. Would recommend to anyone without a background in economics. For a more scholarly and detailed discussion turn to A History of Economic Theory and Method by Robert B. Ekelund Jr. and Robert F. Hebert.
Very informative overview of economic policies that is relatively clear and easy to understand.
