Description - Islamic Roots of Capitalism by Peter Gran

This paperback edition has an updated first chapter, resituating its main argument for today's readers. New historical data on eigh teenth- and nineteenth-century Egypt makes an extremely persuasive argument for the eighteenth-century roots of Egyptian modernity. The similarity, too, of Egyptian history with other Mediterranean countries is much more clearly demonstrated today than when Islamic Roots of Capitalism first was published.
