Volume III investigates what Braudel terms "world-economies"—the economic dominance of a particular city at different periods of history, from Venice to Amsterdam, London, New York.

From the Back Cover:

The reader will find in it plenty of descriptions, narratives, images, developments, regular patterns and breaks in those patterns-but from start to finish I have tried to refrain from the urge to describe everything, for the mere pleasure of drawing a picture, underlining a point or directing attention to a telling detail.

From Library Journal:

Originally published in the early 1980s, Civilization traces the social and economic history of the world from the Middle Ages to the Industrial Revolution, although his primary focus is Europe. Braudel skims over politics, wars, etc., in favor of examining life at the grass roots: food, drink, clothing, housing, town markets, money, credit, technology, the growth of towns and cities, and more. The history is fascinating and made even more interesting by period prints and drawings.
