Description - Premodern Trade in World History by Richard L Smith

This far reaching study examines the key theme of trading in world history, from the earliest signs of trade until 1500 when long-distance trade routes such as the famous Silk Road were firmly established. Including coverage of ancient Egypt and Sumeria, and the Akkadian, Babylonian, Assyrian, and Persian empires, Richard L. Smith shows how the Roman Empire consolidated rather than created a large scale trading system. At the same time, he shows how international trade was developing in South and East Asia and in Africa. As well as surveying the development of trade in different regions, the book brings the story vividly to life through a detailed examination of how trade in these separate areas came together, through the lens of the trans-Saharan trade route.
