A Guildsman's Interpretation of History

Incorporating a stunning array of ideas, insights, and interpretations, this remarkable study by
Arthur Penty focuses on 2,000 years of socio-economic trends.
With an attractive and accessible style, important factors and moments of development are highlighted - including the role of the Church beyond its spiritual contributions, the introduction of money, the revival of Roman Law, the birth of Capitalism during the mediaeval period, and the Industrial Revolution. 
Tracing the development and decline of the application of Christian morality to economics, this thorough examination offers a candid historical assessment of the pitfalls of modern society.
