' ... a well-researched and documented synthesis which will not only provide a background survey and ready reference for medievalists in all disciplines, but lays down new guidelines for a new generation of research in monetary history ... The centrepiece of the book is the chapter entitled 'The place of money in the commercial revolution of the thirteenth century' ... [which] should be read by every scholar with an interest in theoretical approaches to medieval history.' Alan M. Stahl, Speculum ' ... a major contribution to numismatic literature, and a mature achievement by a scholar whose name will be well known to most readers ... It is a book to read and re-read, for it is the fruit of very wide historical learning, assimilated by an experienced monetary historian, who has thought constructively about the problems he discusses for half a life-time ... Highly recommended.' Michael Metcalf, Spink's Numismatic Circular
