I am researching facts on the importance of silver mining in South America and how that wealth carried back to Europe by Spaniards contributed to the advent of the Industrial Revolution.with this increased cashflow that surpassed the borders of Spain and found its way to the rest of Europe.

This book is very academic and plodding. I enjoyed the class but not this book. It was hard to read and boring. I had to force myself to get through it.
