Routledge, 1994, Softcover, Book Condition: Very Good, Second
Standard paperback binding with b/w illustrations and diagrams in text. Feint discolouration to text block edges. A clear and readable account of the development of the European economy and its infrastructure from the second century to 1500. Professor Pounds provides a balanced view of the many controversies within the subject, and he has a particular gift for bringing a human dimension to its technicalities. He deals with continental Europe as a whole, including an unusually rich treatment of Eastern Europe. For this welcome new edition - the first in twenty years - text and bibliography have been reworked and updated throughout, and the book redesigned and reset. Editorial Reviews: '...a full and clearly written survey... Professor Pounds explains complex subjects, such as bills of exchange, medieval money, or the peasant family, with admirable clarity'.
