About the Authors
  • The theme of this volume, first published in 1997, is challenging both in its scale and in its scope. Its purpose is to take account of the state of research and writing on the symbiotic relationship between banking, trade and industry, and the state during the rise and expansion of capitalism, as well as to compare and assess the results in order to widen current perspectives. Topics range from the origins of banking in the Middle Ages, through the influence of banks in leading industrial economies as well as in 'latecomer' economies, to the expansion of banking in America and Asia.

    • Was the first volume to cover the principal aspects of the relationship between banking, trade and industry, and the state since the Middle Ages
    • Coverage extends over four continents, Europe, North America, Asia and Europe
    • The authors are the leading historians on finance and trade in their respective countries
