Land and Natural Resources in the Roman World in Historiographical and Theoretical Perspective

(p.1) 1 Introduction
Ownership and Exploitation of Land and Natural Resources in the Roman World

Arjan Zuiderhoek

Oxford University Press

This introductory chapter outlines the book’s theme and the main questions that will be addressed. It discusses the merits and drawbacks of the various theoretical approaches that have been applied to the analysis of land and natural resources in the Roman economy until now—market-models, substantivist analysis, and population-resources modelling. It concludes with an argument in favour of a New Institutional Economics (NIE) approach.

Keywords:   land, natural resources, Roman economic history, theoretical approaches, market model, substantivist model, demographic models, New Institutional Economics
