The economies of classical and Mediterranean antiquity are at present a battleground. a few students see them as full of life and innovative, even proto-capitalist: others see them as static, embedded in social motion and standing relationships.
Focusing at the vital interval of the Mediterranean 330-30 BC, this e-book contributes considerably to the controversy, by way of juxtaposing common questions of thought and model-building with case-studies which study particular components and types of evidence.
It breaks new floor through distilling and offering new and newly-reinterpreted facts for the Hellenistic period, by means of starting the talk on how we should always change Rostovtzeff's vintage view of this era, and by means of supplying a compelling new set of interpretative rules to the talk at the historic economy.
