About this product
- DescriptionThis book offers the first comprehensive study of ecomic conditions and ecomic life in Roman cities during the late Republic and early Empire. By employing a sophisticated methodology based upon comparative evidence and contemporary ecomic theory, the author develops interlocking arguments about the relationship between four key attributes of urban ecomic life in Roman antiquity: the nature and magnitude of consumer demand; the structure of urban labour markets; the strategies devised by urban artisans in their efforts to navigate their social and ecomic environments; and the factors that served to limit both the overall performance of the Roman ecomy, and its potential for intensive growth. While the author's methodology and conclusions will be of particular interest to specialists in ecomic history, other readers will profit from his discussion of topics such as slavery and manumission, the ecomic significance of professional associations, and the impact of gender on ecomic behaviour.
