0 Reviews
In his unique analysis of the economic structure of early Renaissance Europe, Harry A. Miskimin uses topical economic concepts to examine the far-reaching changes that drew the monarchs of Europe ever further into the management of economic affairs between 1300 and 1460. He shows in colourful detail how the political power of European kings rose during these centuries as they increasingly became the centers of economic strength, and as money replaced personal allegiance as an index of authority.
