Summary In a series of brief, readable vignettes, the authors bring to life international trade and its actors--merchants and bankers, pirates and privateers, sailors and slaves, traders and tree tappers. In the process they make clear that the seemingly modern concept of economic globalization has deep historical roots. This third edition includes new selections of African cocoa, silver and gold in Brazil and Mexico, the Rothschilds, the rise of Panama as a financial center, the transition from coal to oil, fair trade laws, and the expansion of offshore manufacturing since World War II.
