Book Description

18 Nov 2010 Key Themes in Ancient History
This 2010 book was the first to undertake a comprehensive analysis of the impact of money on the economy, society and culture of the Greek and Roman worlds. It uses new approaches in economic history to explore how money affected the economy in antiquity and demonstrates that the crucial factors in its increasing influence were state-formation, expanding political networks, metal supply and above all an increasing sophistication of credit and contractual law. Covering a wide range of monetary contexts within the Mediterranean over almost a thousand years (c.600 BC–AD 300), it demonstrates that money played different roles in different social and political circumstances. The book will prove an invaluable introduction to upper-level students of ancient money, while also offering perspectives for future research to the specialist.

Amazon.com: 4.0 out of 5 stars  1 review
4.0 out of 5 stars Nice overview of a specialized topic. 23 Nov 2013
By Lori Reeser - Published on Amazon.com
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.
