Studies in the History of Finance, new book series launch

The 'Palgrave Studies in the History of Finance’ series, edited by Professor Adrian Bell, Head of the ICMA Centre, Dr Tony Moore, ICMA Centre Research Associate and D'Maris Coffman, Director of Centre for Financial History, Newnham College, University of Cambridge, is set to launch on 30 January, 2014 at Heffers Book Shop, Cambridge.

The first book in the series, titled, ‘Excise Taxation and the Origins of Public Debt’, is written by D’Maris Coffman and offers a “wholesale reinterpretation of both the introduction of excise taxation in Great Britain in the 1640s and the genesis of the Financial Revolution of the 1690s.”

Professor Adrian Bell, Dr Tony Moore and D’Maris Coffman’s series ‘Palgrave Studies in the History of Finance’ is a multi-disciplinary effort to emphasise the role played by finance in the past, and what lessons historical experiences have for us. It presents original research, in both authored monographs and edited collections, from historians,finance academics and economists, as well as financial practitioners.
