KIRKUS REVIEW

Practical data about money in general and American currency in particular. In 700 B.C. the merchants of Lydia -- the kingdom of Croesus -- were the originators of stamped metal coins, and China was the birthplace of paper money. The four principle uses of money are explained before the author launches out on a description of our mint, Federal Reserve banks, counterfeiting, and gold standard.
