Product Description

Book Description

This 2010 book was the first comprehensive analysis of the impact of money on the economy, society and culture of the Greek and Roman worlds. State-formation, expanding political networks, metal supply and above all an increasing sophistication of credit and contractual law are demonstrated as being the crucial factors in money's increasing influence.

Nice overview of a specialized topic. 23 Nov 2013
By Lori Reeser - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Very nice overview of the topic. This is limited to money (the concept of a 'universal' measure of exchange) not just coins, but also not the economy. There are two major sections- the development of monetization and price formation. Obviously specialized, this is part of a series aimed at graduate students and above. It raised a number of issues that would make a good thesis topic.

My interest starts with Rome. I don't know a lot about Greece and the Eastern Mediterranean at this time but I was able to follow the book.

I will be reading more from this series Key Themes in Ancient History by Cambridge University Press.
