Summary

Challenges most existing accounts of capitalism's origins, arguing that they fail to recognize its distinctive attributes as a social system by making its emergence seem natural and inevitable. Assesses the ideas of classical thinkers ranging from Adam Smith to Max Weber, then explores the great Marxist debates among writers such as Paul Sweezy and Maurice Dobb. Gives an original account of capitalism's agrarian origin, challenging conceptions of modernity and postmodernity, the association of capitalism with cities, the identification of ''capitalist'' with ''bourgeois.''Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
