A man who has my respect once said, "Humans always try to understand who they are and the context of where they are. History is an effort to achieve this. Some have followed human history through kingdoms, others through wars and battles, still others through art and music."
This book is actually an effort to explain who we are from the perspective of economics as it was born and developed overtime, and reading it has been a very rewarding adventure for me. From Aristotle's idea of private property to Karl Marx's socialism theory -- all the economic debates and disagreements that shaped our world as we know it today -- they are precious international knowledge that will help you see a world within the world, beauties that you could never have imagined before.
