The essays collected in this volume represent author Cheng-chung Lai's views on Fernand Braudel's concepts, methodology, and principal books. Through an examination of Braudel's contributions to historiography, Lai focuses on the inner logic and insights presented in Braudel's writings.

Lai's book is useful for showing how an economic historian interprets and citiques Braudel's works.--Frederic J. Baumgartner, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University "Sixteenth Century Journal "
