Debt: The First 5,000 Years is a book that eludes a simple summary. It is an encyclopaedic journey through global history encompassing the stories of grand civilizations as well as small societies whose social logic reveals more about the human condition than anyone might imagine. It is primarily a story about money and the way material issues have always been underlain by moral considerations.
