Promotional Information

A study interrogating the assumption that economic conditions in the Roman Empire resembled those found in early modern Europe.


"Bang's well-researched and clearly written (and much-warranted) investigation will prove valuable to anyone interested in the comparative history of premodern empires and economies. Bang is surely right to claim the need for more studies of comparable ancient structures rather than more comparisons between ancient and modern ones. His is a first big step in the right direction." The Journal of Interdisciplinary History, Brent D. Shaw, Princeton University
"This is an extremely rich and stimulating book..." --American Historical Review
