"The author begins his intellectual journey in Mesopotamia, and pauses along the way to consider the usury teachings of ancient Chinese literature, those of the ancient Hindus, the precepts of the Koran on the matter, as well as those of the Rabbinical law. This book provides us with complete bibliographical citations together with annotations as to the work's content and short authorial biographies, each succeeding section introduced with a brief essay placing the works of that section in the proper context."
