The phenomenon of money by Thomas Crump ( Book )

First published in 1981, this book concerns itself with the different ways in which money is used, the relationships which then arise, and the institutions concerned in maintaining its various functions. Thomas Crump examines the emergence of institutions with familiar and distinctive monetary roles: the state, the market and the banking system. However, other uses of money - such as for gambling or the payment of fines - are also taken into account, in an exhaustive, encyclopedic treatment of the subject, which extends far beyond the range of conventional treatises on money

Asia-Pacific by Thomas Crump ( Book )
11 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 281 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Asia-Pacific is the first authoritative history of a region rich in history, riven with conflict and central to our world today. The political backdrop was informed by China, from the fall of its Empire at the beginning of the 20th century through to Mao Zedong's revolution. The aftermath of World War II saw a radical transformation in what is often known as The Ring of Fire. Japan, defeated, lost its Empire and armed forces. The war between North and South Korea added a crucial twist, with world-wide repercussions still being felt a half century later. Long-standing European colonial Empires, British, Dutch and French crumbled in South East Asia, as new nations demanded independence, with varying degrees of conflict and violence -- culminating in the long Vietnam War." "The year 1975 was a watershed. Mao Zedong and Ho Chi Minh had died, leaving the way open to dialogue and rapprochement between the East and West. The strained relations between China, and the Soviet Union -- part of Mao's legacy -- together with the eventual Soviet collapse left the US as the major beneficiary." "But most importantly, the major countries of the region have been largely at peace for over 30 years, and are enjoying the fruits of this peace -- unprecedented levels of commerce and foreign investment has made the region the driving force in the world economy, and increasingly central to the politics of globalization. Yet this peace is tentative, with the rumblings of discontent always audible. Thomas Crump has written a fascinating modern history which will further our understanding of a region that has shaped our past and will continue to shape our future." --BOOK JACKET

Brezhnev and the decline of the Soviet Union by Thomas Crump ( )
7 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Leonid Brezhnev was leader of the Soviet Union from 1964-1982, a longer period than any other Soviet leader apart from Stalin. During Brezhnev's time Soviet power seemed at its height and increasing. Living standards were rising, the Soviet Union was a nuclear power and successful in its space missions, and the Soviet Union's influence reached into all part of the world. Yet, as this book, which provides a comprehensive overview and reassessment of Brezhnev's life, early political career and career as leader, shows, the seeds of decline were sown in Brezhnev's time.
