About this title:

Synopsis: The Ancient Economy introduces readers to the nature of economic life in the ancient world, and provides a valuable guide to scholarly debates on the subject. The book describes and examines the economic processes and fluctuations of the ancient world, and shows how these relate to political and social change and conditions. Leading experts address the central issues, from agricultural production to the uses of money and the creation of markets. Taken as a whole the book exemplifies the range of interdisciplinary perspectives on the ancient economy, and illustrates the methodological approaches scholars have deployed to understand it. In doing so it draws on literary, ecological and archaeological evidence.

About the Author: Walter Scheidel currently teaches ancient history at the University of Chicago. Formerly Moses and Mary Finley Research Fellow of Darwin College, Cambridge, and a visiting professor at Stanford University, he has published widely on ancient social and economic history, including Measuring sex, age and death in the Roman empire: explorations in ancient demography (1996) and Death on the Nile: disease and the demography of Roman Egypt (in press). Sitta von Reden is a Lecturer in Classics and Ancient History at the University of Bristol.
