Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

Fischer has examined price records in many nations, and finds that great waves of rising prices in the 13th-, 16th-, 18th-, and 20th centuries were all marked by price swings of increasing volatility, falling wages, a growing gap between rich and poor, and an increase in violent crime, family disintegration, and cultural despair. 109 graphs & charts. 7 maps.


Review:

"Whether or not Mr. Fischer's analyses are complete and correct is not especially important. He has described the past and present in ways that inspire interesting questions and offer novel insights into our condition. Can a historian make a finer contribution?"

Thomas J. Archdeacon, New York Times Book Review, 01/05/1997

Review:

"A bold overview of how ordinary men and women have been protagonists in a drama that was ( in retrospect) nothing less that the modernization of economic life."

Robert Heilbroner, Civilization
