Emma Rothschild focuses on Wm Playfair's annotations as a turning point in
the reception of Smith.
And for her it was a turn for the worse.
I haven't been able to read Giovanni Arrighi's defense of Smith in his
Adam Smith in Beijing yet. But he  certainly does not think Smith was a
bourgeois apologist.
