The World That Trade Created

The World That Trade Created Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The new edition of this fascinating book reveals the answers to tantalizing questions about society, culture, and the world economy. Brief, highly readable vignettes bring to life international trade and its actors--including migrants and merchants, pirates and privateers, sailors and slaves.

Book News Annotation:

Although this work has its origins in the series of "Looking Back" columns penned by the authors (professors of history at the U. of California at Irvine) in the pages of the business magazine World Trade over the course of more than a decade, its treatment of the history and creation of the world economy is unified by a number of central propositions, including a rejection of European prime centrality in the world economy's development, as well as a rejection of "simple-minded anti-imperialism." Their text is constituted of brief illustrative case studies connected to seven central topics: the making of market conventions; the tactics of transport; the economic culture of drugs; commodities in world trade; the economics of violence; making modern markets; and world trade, industrialization, and deindustrialization.
