Payback : Debt and the Shadow Side of Wealth Paperback



In this wide-ranging history of debt Margaret Atwood investigates its many meanings through the ages, from ancient times to the current global financial meltdown.

Many of us wonder: how could we have let such a collapse happen?

How old or inevitable is this human pattern of debt?

Imaginative, topical and insightful, Payback urges us to reconsider our ideas of ownership and debt - before it is too late.
