In this book, one of the world’s most renowned historians
provides a concise and comprehensive history of
capitalism within a global perspective from its medieval
origins to the 2008 financial crisis and beyond. From
early commercial capitalism in the Arab world, China, and
Europe, to nineteenth- and twentieth-century
industrialization, to today’s globalized financial
capitalism, Jurgen Kocka offers an unmatched account of
capitalism, one that weighs its great achievements
against its great costs, crises, and failures. Based on
intensive research, the book puts the rise of capitalist
economies in social, political, and cultural context, and
shows how their current problems and foreseeable future
are connected to a long history.

This monograph is a progressive introduction to non-
commutativity in probability theory, summarizing and
synthesizing recent results about classical and quantum
stochastic processes on Lie algebras. In the early
chapters, focus is placed on concrete examples of the
links between algebraic relations and the moments of
probability distributions. This book will appeal to
advanced undergraduate and graduate students interested
in the relations between algebra, probability, and
quantum theory. It also addresses a more advanced
audience by covering other topics related to non-
commutativity in stochastic calculus, Levy processes, and
the Malliavin calculus.
