A study of the economic aspects of parliamentary debate during David Ricardo's time as a member of the House of Commons from 20 February 1819 until his death on 11 September 1823. "Ricardo sometimes appeared to be the guiding light and sometimes a near devil, but on practically every issue he was a central figure. If Gordon's book had a subtitle, it certainly should be 'Ricardian and anti-Ricardian Sentiments in Parliament'" (contemporary review by Frank Spring in Journal of Economic Literature).
