Review: Power and Profit: The Merchant in Medieval Europe

Power and Profit: The Merchant in Medieval Europe
Power and Profit: The Merchant in Medieval Europe by Peter Spufford
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is not to race through…there’s something to be learned on every page. From what was traded into and out of Europe to how it was transported and what it cost every step of the way, Spufford has delved into what little record there is and reached some persuasive conclusions about medieval entrepreneurship. The first-edition hardcover illustrations are eclectic, but useful. An excellent companion to his “Money and Its Uses in Medieval Europe”

  • WHAT is the above? It looks like one of the strangest spams I’ve seen in a long time. ‘Viagra’ should have given me a clue. 😆

    Power and Profit looks like another way to approach Medieval Europe. When I was (finally) finishing my degree I did combo classes in Medieval Art and History. History becomes so much more real when it isn’t studied as war and politics.
