"To understand what capitalism means today, we must ask about economics and culture, for capital is central to each. It takes on spectral form: shadowy, fleeting, but omnipresent.

"The origins of modern economic growth have been a central preoccupation of economic historians since, well, there has been modern economic growth. As this volume edited by Greif, Kiesling, and Nye makes clear, that preoccupation is very much alive, and scholarship on the subject is alive and well. For readers interested in understanding the state of the art, there is no better place to start."--Barry Eichengreen, University of California, Berkeley
