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.
