9780861933068: Trade and Trust in the Eighteenth-Century Atlantic World: Spanish Merchants and their Overseas Networks (Royal Historical Society Studies in History New Series)

Fruitfully combining approaches from economic history and the cultural history of commerce, this book examines the role of interpersonal trust in underpinning trade, amid the challenges and uncertainties of the eighteenth-century Atlantic. It focuses on the nature of mercantile activity in two parts of Spain: Cadiz in the south, and its trade with Spain's American empire; and Bilbao in the north, and its trade with western and northern Europe. In particular, it explores the processes of trade, trading networks and communications, seeking to understand merchant behaviour, especially the choices made by individuals when conducting business - and specifically with whom they chose to deal. Drawing from a broad range of Spanish, Peruvian and British archival sources, the book reveals merchants' experiences of trusting their agents and correspondents, and shows how different factors, from distance to legal frameworks and ethnicity, affected their ability to rely on their contacts. Xabier Lamikiz is Associate Professor of Economic History at the University of the Basque Country. .

About the Author:

XABIER LAMIKIZ teaches Economic History at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid.

Review:

"This marvellous book brings theoretical rigour and insightful analysis to bear on an exceptional body of previously unknown source material. In doing so, it makes a most novel and important contribution to the literature of early modern Spanish Atlantic trade." -Economic History Review.

Very well written, with a good index, an extensive bibliography, and several useful maps and tables. Anyone interested in the Early Modern period would profit from reading it. --International Journal of Maritime History

A major contribution not only to Atlantic history, but to colonial Latin American history in general. --Colonial Latin American Historical Review, Fall 2007
