Book Summary:

This is the first history of finance - broadly defined to include money, banking, capital markets, public and private finance, international transfers etc. - that covers Western Europe (with an occasional glance at the western hemisphere) and half a millennium. Charles Kindleberger highlights the development of financial institutions to meet emerging needs, and the similarities and contrasts in the handling of financial problems such as transferring resources from one country to another, stimulating investment, or financing war and cleaning up the resulting monetary mess. The first half of the book covers money, banking and finance from 1450 to 1913; the second deals in considerably finer detail with the twentieth century. This major work casts current issues in historical perspective and throws light on the fascinating, and far from orderly, evolution of financial institutions and the management of financial problems. Comprehensive, critical and cosmopolitan, this book is both an outstanding work of reference and essential reading for all those involved in the study and practice of finance, be they economic historians, financial experts, scholarly bankers or students of money and banking. This groundbreaking work was first published in 1984.

Book Summary:

The wealth of the Central European archives, particularly in urban records, has not been fully realised by Western European historians. However, the records are not always straightforward to use and many studies tackle the methodological problems inherent in gathering and analysing medieval sources. This book presents an original review of past and present research of national historiographies on medieval financial history from Central Europe. Covering material ranging from the thirteenth to the sixteenth centuries, it explores the eastern regions of the Holy Roman Empire, including Bohemia, Silesia, Austria and Germany, and extending to Poland and Hungary. The authors firstly discuss the monetary policy of the Holy Roman emperors during the Middle Ages, before moving on to wider aspects of state finance, including credit mechanisms used by rulers. The book then investigates civic records and what they reveal about urban life and trade. It lastly investigates the financial activities of the church, from papacy to the cathedral chapters in Prague. Using numismatic and documentary evidence, Money and Finance in Central Europe during the Later Middle Ages provides an invaluable point of comparison with the financial conditions in Western Europe during the Middle Ages.

Book Summary:

There has recently been a considerable amount of work published on 'Popular Banking' of various sorts - agricultural credit cooperatives, soft loan societies, and urban lending and cooperative societies. Much of this work remains at a specialist and detailed level. This collection seeks to introduce some of this material to a wider audience of economic and social historians, while drawing some important comparisons across the whole of the European continent on the meaning of various institutional contexts. Its particular advantages lie in the comparisons between Eastern and Western Europe, the location of popular banking in the context of the wider financial system and in the long time perspective which it adopts. That attention is paid to the Soviet banking model and its application in the countries of Eastern Europe is of considerable interest, as are the very different perspectives on the role and place of popular banking in the late twentieth century. In historiographical terms, it also brings much of the eastern European literature to the attention of an English speaking audience for the first time.
