The distinguished journalist and former British Ambassador to the United States offers an epic history of mankind's quest to invent, trade and make money. Many have told the story of mankind's evolution, battle for survival, and physical adaptation to a changing world. But equally as exciting as that physical tale is the story of our struggle to satisfy his second imperative (assuming reproduction is the first): the craving, separately and collectively, for material betterment. Now, Peter Jay, the Economics Editor of the BBC, former Economics Editor for the London Times and former British Ambassador to the United States, has written a broadranging, stirring, and surprising account of man's pursuit of wealth. From cavemen to cyberspace, and spanning the entire globe, The Wealth of Manis a work of historical, economic, scientific and cultural synthesis - the sort of re-reading of history that makes a reader's eyes pop open with wonder and delight.
