Avner Greif's book on economic history

The book is titled Institutions and the Path to the Modern Economy: Lessons from Medieval Trade and is available online. [link via Henry Farrell of Crooked Timber].

I haven't read it; I guess, given my current backlog, it may be a long time before I get to it. In any event, I record it here just so that I know where to find it when I need it!

    Communities lost something valuable when they ceased seeking counsel from the elders on matters of import. Elders are more experienced and presumably wiser. Having made decisions at numerous crosroads, I am still around to pass on my two cents worth. Keep on learning is paramount as is seeking out new ideas like visiting your blog. Developing an appreciation for actuality, efficiency and mindfulness will eventually lead to peace of mind. Assisting others to find their own minds and helping them to see some of the forest through the trees is also most rewarding. happy thought
