Description
 
This concluding vol. completes Braudelís great trilogy on the social & economic history of the world from the Middle Ages to the Industrial Revolution. Braudel here charts the growth of the world economy from the 15th to the 18th century. He describes the human activity that underlies the business of life: the bustle of the market, the calm of the great manipulators of capital, the labor of the slave, the life of the peasant worker of the early industrial age; the fashions of the rich, the rise of the great cities & financial centers of Genoa, Venice, Amsterdam & London. A vast moving tapestry reflecting the extraordinary vivacity of a historian whose reach of mind is matched by his power to put history under the microscope. Transl. from the French. Illus.
