In this volume, noted economic historian Richard Grassby investigates the origins and evolution of the idea of capitalism to illustrate for readers the true nature, merits, and the future of capitalism. Grassby examines its numerous and often conflicting definitions, and he tests alternative models of capitalism against the historical record to establish when, where, how, and why modern economies and societies emerged.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This book appears at a time when the bloody struggle between capitalism and socialism unexpectedly seems to have ended, and now we must wonder why capitalism triumphed and where it is leading us. . . . The result according to Grassby, is an idea that retains symbolic importance. -- Richard F. Teichgraeber, Murphy Institute of Political Economy and Department of History, Tulane University
This much needed attack upon the abuses of the terminology and concepts of capitalism should be required reading for students and professors in history, the social sciences, and perhaps, most of all, the humanities. Grassby has written a brilliant essay, based upon vast learning. -- Frank Melton, University of North Carolina, Greensboro
