Pressestimmen"...Hunt and Murray provide a very well informed and intelligent exposition of medieval business developments for the nonspecialist." Choice "[Hunt and Murry's] basic findings are that business was driven by the demand of the elite for exotic goods, and that the lasting contribution of Medieval business was organization rather than the innovations they imported." Reference & Research Book News "[Hunt and Murray's] basic findings are that business was driven by the demand of the elite for exotic goods, and that the lasting contribution of Medieval business was organization rather than the innovations they imported." Reference & Research Book News "This succinct and beautifully written book is a worthy edition to the distinguished series, Cambridge Medieval Textbooks." The Historian "...at last we have a nuanced alternative to the old orthodoxies and an eminently persuasive one which, while never underplaying the genuine problems of the late medieval economy, creates a scenario in which the early modern economic take-off makes sense." Envoi. "Hunt and Murray have done a valuable service in producing this textbook...The authors are also to be commended for their ability to transform sometimes technical business jargon into well-crafted, readable prose."
