About this product
- DescriptionThis book is about the ecomy of the Carolingian empire (753-877), which extended from the Pyrenees and the rthern shores of the Mediterranean to the North Sea, and from the Atlantic coast to the Elbe and Saale rivers. It is the first comprehensive evaluation of the topic in English in over twenty years. The study of the Carolingian empire as an ecomic rather than a political entity can be justified both because of the major interference of political authority in the ecomy, and because of the distinctive ecomic characteristic of growth; and while some regions within the empire had a much more developed ecomy than others, the whole period is basically one of ecomic expansion, in parallel with the cultural upheaval of the 'Carolingian Renaissance'.
