9780060912956: Wheels of Commerce

In the second volume in this splendid trilogy Braudel turns his attention to the markets and exchanges that, from the start, have been the real motors of change. Peddlers, merchants, fairs, market stalls, the first stock exchanges, means of travel and communication, styles of life and social mores all brought sharply and imaginatively into focus.

Product Description:

The subject of "The Wheels of Commerce" is the development of mechanisms of exchange - shops, markets, trade networks, and banking - in the pre-industrial stages of capitalism.

Review:

"The intricacy of detail and boldness of hypothesis in this book are indisputable, and if one is to do more than skim it, it demands and repays enormous attention. . . . The lavish illustrations are superbly well chosen. The pictures show the endless variety of commercial dealings of which humans are capable."--Jonathan Spence, "New York Times Book Review
