“…a thought-provoking study of a subject that is too often taken for granted, rather than subjected to critical examination.” • Financial Times

“…a very stimulating, multi-faceted and valuable study of morality, and economics.” • Historische Zeitschrift

“Scholarly yet accessible, this is an excellent, much-needed analysis of a subject that is both topical and timeless. Poley focuses on key figures and social forces in well-chosen case studies from throughout modern history, providing a valuable perspective on the last half millennium of globalized capital.” • Douglas McGetchin, Florida Atlantic University

Jared Poley is Professor of History at Georgia State University. He is author of Decolonization in Germany: Weimar Narratives of Colonial Loss and Foreign Occupation (2005) and a co-editor of the collections Conversion and the Politics of Religion in Early Modern Germany (Berghahn, 2012), Migrations in the German Lands, 1500-2000 (Berghahn, 2016), Kinship, Community, and Self (Berghahn, 2014), and Money in the German Speaking Lands (Berghahn, 2017).
