Críticas:

'… useful reading for anyone interested in the antecedents of today's vibrant international financial markets.' Foreign Affairs

'… a magisterial survey … This book will become the starting point from which all scholars will in future have to base their research.' Financial History Review

'It is difficult to do justice to the scope of the book in this brief review … in presenting a complex story in a readable and accessible narrative, Cassis performs a valuable service to the business historian.' Enterprise and Society

'… an admirable, indeed indispensable account of how the capitals of capital evolved over more than two centuries - a contest that continues today in perhaps more granular and nuanced form … As modern academic offerings encompassing a solid dose of financial history are designed, Capitals of Capital will surely command a prominent place on reading lists.' Journal of International Economics

'This is a truly scholarly work of synthesis … the breadth, scope and detail of the study must recommend it to scholars and students seeking an overview of the development of international financial and banking markets over the past two hundred years.' Catherine R. Schenk, EH.NET

'Professor Cassis, with the help of his translator, has written a first class book; one that can, thanks in no small part to the comprehensive glossary, be read by the non-specialist.' Open History

'In Capitals of Capital Youssef Cassis vividly explains and compares the roles of major international financial centres in creating and sustaining our current global economy. The great centres - London, New York, Paris, Amsterdam, Berlin and Frankfurt, Tokyo, and others - rise, decline, and rejuvenate. They compete and cooperate to pool the world's financial resources and distribute them to finance trade and investment within and among nations. Institutions and personalities of course did the work, and Cassis gives the great banks and bankers, markets, and stock exchanges due attention. The book brilliantly demonstrates that much of modern history can be brought into focus through the lens of international financial center development.' Richard Sylla, Stern School of Business

'A dizzying and masterful narrative of the ever-changing fate of financial centres. Combining big trends and small but exciting details, Youssef Cassis connects the dots from the decline of Amsterdam in the late 18th century to globalization in the early 21st century. How did Hong Kong and Singapore emerge as world-class financial centres? Why did Berlin dislodge Frankfurt as Germany's top financial spot in the 1870s? All of that, and much, much more is explained in detail in this book that economists, historians and just about everyone interested in international finance will enjoy reading.' Charles Wyplosz, Graduate Institute of International Studies, Geneva

'Youssef Cassis has presented a masterful historical profile of international financial centers. The book is a triumph.' Mira Wilkins, Florida International University

'Capitals of Capital is the landmark achievement of a renowned comparative historian. Although the main individual international financial centres have had their histories written, there has long been a need for an authoritative, comprehensive overview of the fluctuating and often entwined fortunes of the rival centres. Youssef Cassis not only dispassionately tells that story over the last two and a quarter centuries, but also gives us much to ponder about the future as we move ever further into a post-industrial age.' David Kynaston, author of The City of London

'Anyone interested in the historical background of the world's most important international financial centers will prize this book enormously.' Journal of Interdisciplinary History

Reseña del editor:

International financial centres have come to represent a major economic stake. Yet no historical study has been devoted to them. Professor Cassis, a leading financial historian, attempts to fill this gap by providing a comparative history of the most important centres that constitute the capitals of capital - New York, London, Frankfurt, Paris, Zurich, Amsterdam, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Singapore - from the beginning of the industrial age up to the present. The book has been conceived as a reflection on the dynamics of the rise and decline of international financial centres, setting them in their economic, political, social, and cultural context. While rooted in a strong and lively historical narrative, it draws on the concepts of financial economics in its analysis of events. It should widely appeal to business and finance professionals as well as to scholars and students in financial and economic history.

Descripción Estado de conservación: New. This is a study of the ways in which the consumption of luxury goods transformed social practices, gender roles, royal policies and the economy in seventeenth-century England. Peck charts the development of new ways of shopping and new aspirations and identities shaped by print, continental travel and trade to Asia, Africa, the East and West Indies. She follows new building, furnishing and collecting, and the new relationship of technology, luxury and science. As contemporaries eagerly appropriated and copied foreign material culture, the expansion of luxury consumption continued across the usual divide of the Civil War and the Interregnum and helped to propel England from the margins to the centre of European growth and innovation. Both enthralling and instructive, the volume shows for the first time the seventeenth-century origins of consumer society.i>. Nº de ref. de la librería 2308
