    The Power of Gold: The History of an Obsession by Bernstein, Peter L

    New York et al.: John Wiley & Sons, Inc, 2000. WYSIWYG pricing--no added shipping charge for standard shipping within USA. Black boards, gilt titles on spine, xv, 432 pp, notes, bibliography, index. DJ in Brodart archival cover. From the DJ: "This fascinating account begins with the magical, religious, and artistic qualities of gold and progresses to the invention of coinage, the transformation of gold into money, and the gold standard. The more important gold becomes as money, the more loudly it speaks of power--even more loudly than when it served as an entry to Heaven or a symbol of omnipotence. Ultimately, the book confronts the future of gold in a world where it appears to have been relegated to the periphery of global finance." Shipping weight 3 lbs. (International 2 lbs., 8 oz.).
