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.
