1 Arce, Javier & Bertrand Goffaux (Eds. ) HORREA D'HISPANIE ET DE LA MÉDITERRANÉE ROMAINE
Casa De Velázquez 2011 8496820629 / 9788496820623 Softcover Very Good+ 
Upper corners slightly bumped else fine. ; Les horrea, édifices de stockage et de rangement, font partie intégrante des circuits d'approvisionnement du monde méditerranéen antique. Leur utilisation relève d'une nécessité économique et politique et renvoie à un contrôle des ressources exercé à différentes échelles, selon des logiques différenciées et pour des durées plus ou moins longues. À travers l'étude des différents types d'entrepôts de la période romaine, le présent ouvrage se propose d'analyser les logiques du stockage et les réseaux de distribution et de redistribution dans le monde méditerranéen. Il porte principalement sur la péninsule Ibérique, tout en offrant des points de comparaison avec l'Italie, l'Orient et l'Afrique. Il fournit ainsi un premier bilan sur les structures de stockage de l'Hispanie et ouvre également des perspectives plus larges sur le fonctionnement de l'économie et le rôle de l'État dans le monde romain. ; Collection De La Casa De Velázquez Volume 125; 352 pages

3 Bagnall, Roger S. LATER ROMAN EGYPT Society, Religion, Economy and Administration
Variorum 2003 0860788997 / 9780860788997 Hardcover Very Good+ with no dust jacket 
A couple of corners very slightly bumped. ; Egypt, with its ever-growing wealth of evidence from the papyri, has in recent decades been one of the liveliest areas of scholarship on the later Roman Empire. This volume collects two dozen articles on the social, economic, and administrative history of Egypt. In these studies some of the main themes of Roger Bagnall's work are visible, in particular attempts to explore the possibilities for quantifying not only questions like the burden of taxation or the distribution of land-ownership, but more tantalizing and controversial matters like the rate at which the population of Egypt was Christianized. ; Variorum Collected Studies Series, 758; 324 pages

8 Carlà, Filippo L'ORO NELLA TARDA ANTICHITÀ: ASPETTI ECONOMICI E SOCIALI
Silvio Zamorani Editore 2009 8871581644 / 9788871581644 Softcover Very Good 
Light edgewear to wraps. Minor shelfwear. Some scuffing to textblock. ; La tarda antichità è spesso descritta come una "età dell'oro", intendendo con questa espressione che il sistema monetario dei secoli IV-VII si sarebbe strutturato soprattutto sulle coniazioni nel metallo più prezioso, attraverso cioè un vero e proprio "ancoramento all'oro" dell'intera struttura economica e dei prezzi. Il solido, moneta introdotta da Costantino, diventa così uno dei simboli per eccellenza del tardo Impero romano. Questo volume mira ad analizzare e approfondire in maniera sistematica gli aspetti sociali, economici e amministrativi legati alla produzione, alla diffusione e alla circolazione della valuta aurea, il suo statuto legale, il rapporto con le altre specie monetali, in riferimento alle attività finanziarie e alle tecniche contabili. Lo studio della moneta fornisce una serie di dati essenziali per una più ampia comprensione della struttura della società tardoantica e del potere d'acquisto dei diversi strati sociali e suggerisce importanti riflessioni sul trapasso istituzionale dall'Impero romano a quello bizantino e ai regni romano-germanici dell'Europa occidentale. ; Collana Del Dipartimento Di Storia Dell'università Di Torino; 558 pages

20 Finley, M. I THE ANCIENT ECONOMY
University of California Press 1973 0520024362 / 9780520024366 Softcover Good+ 
Wraps are somewhat browned. Minor shelfwear and soiling. ; 222 pages; "Technical progress, economic growth, productivity, even efficiency have not been significant goals since the beginning of time, " declares M. I. Finley in his classic work. The states of the ancient Mediterranean world had no recognizable real-property market, never fought a commercially inspired war, witnessed no drive to capital formation, and assigned the management of many substantial enterprises to slaves and ex-slaves. In short, to study the economies of the ancient world, one must begin by discarding many premises that seemed self-evident before Finley showed that they were useless or misleading. These sagacious, fertile, and occasionally combative essays are just as electrifying today as when Finley first wrote them.
