About this book
A powerful and far-reaching explanation of modern world history, and the economic forces behind it, from 1700 to the present day. One of Allen Lane's most successful hardbacks of 2001, which trails Ferguson's 2002 history series for Channel 4, "The British Empire".
Modern history shows that a nation's success largely depends on the way it manages its money. But where do money and politics meet? In this title, the author offers a bold and original analysis of the evolution of today's economic and political landscape.
