Bell presents for the first time a foundational conception of wealth as a form of social resource, and explains the consequences for our understanding of social relations and social process. He demonstrates the articulation of household resources in relation to wealth, constructs a measure of the social power attributable to the holding of wealth assets, and presents an analytically powerful conception of balanced exchange. By observing the implications of wealth on a cross-cultural and multi-societal basis he shows how we can gain new insights into the implications of capital formation during this period of global accumulation.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The book is truly original in conception and persuasive in execution. It has the potential to deliver a lethal blow to pervasive and . . . moribund theories of exchange and wealth accumulation in anthropology, economics, and related disciplines. . . . The author is an accomplished ethnologist, first, but he draws competently from jurisprudence, political economy, and economics to achieve his goals. The work has implications for each of these fields, [and] will certainly spark debate -- Kalman Applbaum, Universtiy of Wisconsin, Milwaukee
This manuscript . . . [is] politically significant for an era of extreme wealth accumulation. The discussion of ways that social relations of inequality and accumulation penetrate intimate domains (e.g., marriage) is important and will receive recognition and debate. -- Josiah McC. Heyman, University of Texas, El Paso
