The book traces in great detail the enlightened climate - of French theoretical origin, but the result of the Habsburg reformist impulse - within which the three texts by Cesare Beccaria ripen: the most famous "On Crimes and Punishments", the debated essay "Of Disorder and remedies of the coins " and the innovative "elements of public economy" that the historian of economic thought Joseph Schumpeter considered so important as to put them on the same level of the famous "Wealth of Nations" by Adam Smith. The result is a framework of great cultural interest that the two authors keep in constant touch with today's reality.Santa Margherita Ligure International Award for Economics as the best economics book in 2008.
