BOOK: THE SOCIAL LIFE OF MONEY IN THE ENGLISH PAST

Larry Mitchell forwarded a link to a web page for a new book,
"The Social Life of Money in the English Past" by Deborah Valenze.

"In an age when authoritative definitions of currency were in flux
and small change was scarce, money enjoyed a rich and complex social
life. Deborah Valenze shows how money became involved in relations
between people in ways that moved beyond what we understand as its
purely economic functions. This highly original investigation covers
the formative period of commercial and financial development in
England between 1630 and 1800."

[The Blanche book was reviewed in the Friday, July 14 issue
of The Wall Street Journal. -Editor]
