The Economies of Hellenistic Societies, Third to First Centuries BC free pdf This selection of essays by key names in the field of ancient economies in the 'Hellenistic' age (c.330-30BCE), provides essential reading for anyone interested in the evolutionary building blocks of economic history in the eastern Mediterranean and neighbouring regions. Case studies look at management and institutions- human mobility and natural resources- the role of different agents - temples and cities, as well as rulers - in enhancing resources and circulating wealth- the levers exerted by monopolies and by disparate status groups, including slaves. An introductory essay summarizes the operational elements that drove the engines of these economies.
