This series publishes work on the history of monies, markets and finance in East Asia, mainly during the period from 1600 to 1900 and with a regional focus on China, Japan and Korea. Monies not only refer to physical objects and monetary functions, but also to such related aspects as mining, smelting and transportation of monetary metals. The multiplicity of markets implies the existence of different currency circuits and competing currencies. The topic of finance includes case studies both on public dimensions and private institutions. Contributions in this series not only deal with empirical and theoretical approaches to economic, social and political aspects, but also with cultural characteristics and meanings. By establishing a solid basis in these domains, the series aims at serving as a starting point for solid cross-cultural comparative research.
