Money, Markets, and Trade in Early Southeast Asia: The Development of Indigenous by Robert S. Wicks

"Wick's book presents a detailed picture of premodern monetary systems that developed through inter-regional trade in a part of the world that has received far too little attention in Western scholarship. Given our current fascination with economic globalization and transnational capital, Wicks' book reminds us that such economic developments are not entirely limited to the modern era."
