Description
The rise of capitalism to global dominance is still largely associated with the advances of the Industrial Revolution. But, as Jairus Banaji shows, this leap was preceded by a long era of 'commercial capitalism,' which reorganized labour and production on a world scale to a degree hitherto rarely appreciated. In Banaji's retelling, the pre-industrial non-European world appears as innovative, dynamic, and thoroughly cosmopolitan.
