Description

"Property and Prophets" is a concise history of the rise and subsequent triumph of capitalism. Focused primarily on England until 1800 and the United States since 1800, the book's economic history is interspersed with the history of ideas that evolved along with the capitalist system.

Table of Contents

This volume profiles a dozen British men and women, who, for varying reasons, opposed the policy of the British government towards its 13 colonies before and during the American Revolution. Their actions helped prepare the way for the recognition of the United States as an independent nation.
