"Sreenivasan's sophisticated book emerged from many years of labor. Replete with staistics (almost numbingly so), it gains life from compellingly told stories of individuals and families participating in markets, shaping the early modern world in a far more direct way than most scholars of early modern Europe have ever imagined."Renaissance Quarterly W. David Myers, Fordham University
"This is a historiographical bouillabaisse with many ingredients...it provides a rich interpretive broth with many a good empirical tidbit...[Sreenivasan] has presented a centuries-encompassing synthesis that reveals a larger picture previously unseen." William W. Hagen, Journal of Modern History
