In this important new book, Geoffrey Ingham draws on neglected traditions in the social sciences to develop a theory of the 'social relation' of money.
  • Genuinely multidisciplinary approach, based on a thorough knowledge of theories of money in the social sciences
  • An original development of the neglected heterodox theories of money
  • New histories of the origins and development of forms of money and their social relations of production in different monetary systems
  • A radical interpretation of capitalism as a particular type of monetary system and the first sociological outline of the institutional structure of the social production of capitalist money
  • A radical critique of recent writing on global e-money, the so-called 'end of money', and new monetary spaces such as the euro.
