In this work, one of the leading economic historians presents his answer to the question of whether and how culture determines economics or is instead determined by it. Using illustrative examples, Jones questions one-sided cultural explanations of social behavior and describes the interaction between culture and economic development. His analysis of contemporary globalization, a subject currently under considerable and partially apprehensive discussion, shows how many centuries of economic competition have resulted in the merging of cultures into fewer and larger units, and that these changes have regularly led to important social advances. The english original was published in 2006 by Princeton University Press.
