Includes bibliographic references and indexISBN: 9780199499717Subject(s): Captialism | Case studyDDC classification: 330.12209 Summary: This book tries to decentre work on the history of capitalism by looking at the longue durée from the 10th century; at regions as diverse as Song China, South and South East Asia, Latin America and the Ottoman and Safavid Empires; and exploring the plurality of developments over this extended time and space. The authors argue against conventional accounts that locate the origins of capitalism solely within Europe and within the conjuncture of the industrial revolution. The essays emphasise historical conjunctures, flows of commodities, circulation of knowledge and personnel, the role of mercantile capital and small producers and stress the necessity to think beyond present day national boundaries. Countering clichés of Western exceptionalism, this text makes a set of historical arguments about non-Western and interconnected economic developments across the globe, prior to the era of colonialism. https://global.oup.com/academic/product/capitalisms-9780199499717?cc=in&lang=en&#

Index

This book tries to decentre work on the history of capitalism by looking at the longue durée from the 10th century; at regions as diverse as Song China, South and South East Asia, Latin America and the Ottoman and Safavid Empires; and exploring the plurality of developments over this extended time and space. The authors argue against conventional accounts that locate the origins of capitalism solely within Europe and within the conjuncture of the industrial revolution. The essays emphasise historical conjunctures, flows of commodities, circulation of knowledge and personnel, the role of mercantile capital and small producers and stress the necessity to think beyond present day national boundaries. Countering clichés of Western exceptionalism, this text makes a set of historical arguments about non-Western and interconnected economic developments across the globe, prior to the era of colonialism.
