There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. Wow, by far one of the best books that I have ever read. I usually do not like history because I prefer to be more proactive and immersed in today’s world. But the clarity on our society’s current situation that this book gives by examining the roots of the wheelx to capitalism is incredible and was so worth my time that I had to take a week’s vacation cokmerce work commercee order to make sure that I could focus to read this.

The writing conveys only one thing – complete clarity into the world today. It is an incredible opus; I loved it. There is no easy answer to the challenges we humans face in organizing and creating a shared activity to enable the greatest overall productivity and happiness. The evolution of humanity during the early Renaissance years provides the explanation for where and why we are organized in this way today.

Conmerce this time in thee way through the lens of the economics of that time period gives a much greater appreciation for the world today that we have constructed. Comkerce most core problems of humanity – social braudwl, equitable distribution of resources, stability, and collective cooperation, have never and may never become solvable.

This book explains these dynamics so eloquently braaudel I wish I had time to read it again and again – much like a great adventure novel that as a kid you just wished would never end and felt a real loss once it did and you had to re-emerge into the real world around you. Braudel is phenomenal in his depth of understanding about how society of the th centuries operated.

The Wheels Of Commerce

I can’t recommend it more highly. If you enjoy detailed aspects about life o the 15thth century then this is a great reference book. It is written for the layman but takes a long time to get through the material. It also covers a wide range of topics. Great source of historical information.

By far the deepest perspective into the complex and very long transition from feudalism to capitalism I’ve read. Frustrating kf those of us, and I admit I’m one, who’d prefer a simpler easier hermeneutic.

Civilization and Capitalism 15thth Century, Vol 2: The Wheels of Commerce by Fernand Braudel

Verbous and well sourced. Roughly pages of citations at the end. Not a thriller by any means, but a great read. Braudel is a rare historian who is very thorough in explaining evolutionary process of civilization.


The Lectern: “The Wheels of Commerce” Fernand Braudel

Trading is a factor being human and how our trading histroy made its mark on our society. This economic history comes in a three volume, a very daunting project which has no competition from other authors.

Even better, he is more factual and less opinionated than most historians. Every student of learning must have this set on there bookshelves.

As for the bookseller, the book came promptly and in a condition better than I had expected. The dust jacket covering was an exceptional surprise! An in depth understanding of business and capitalism’s birth as a natural progression from bartering for goods and labor. I don’t care for or much understand economics. And I often find history to be very dry. This book, however, was a VERY enjoyable read. I originally checked it out of the library because I needed some information for a paper I was writing Braudel sees the big picture AND the details — and not only that, he writes in such an interesting manner that I was able to assimilate a vast amount of information before I knew it.

Massive work, full of details, by the master of economic history. A word of caution: You have to dig very hard, in order to collect the priceless and intriguing meanings of this work.
