Privatization in the Ancient Near East and Classical World (Michael Hudson & Baruch A. Levine)

First in the New Archaeology of Urbanization series. Hudson and Baruch present papers describing the increasingly autonomous private control of land, handicraft workshops and credit from the Bronze Age through classical antiquity. Traces interest-bearing debt as a major lever in prying land and other assets out of communal or "public" control.
