"...moderately advanced students as well as specialists in economic history will find in English Merchants in Seventeenth-Century Italy a useful compendium of data and an often though-provoking case study in that remarkable amplification of English commerical range and power which laid the basis for Britain's later global pre-eminence." Geoffrey Clark, Canadian Journal of History
This book shows how England's conquest of Mediterranean trade proved to be the first step in building its future economic and commercial hegemony, and how Italy lay at the heart of that process. The author looks well beyond Braudel's influential picture of a Spanish-dominated Mediterranean world and sheds fresh light on Italy's gradual commercial decline.
