Cooperation and Competition between Plots and Principles

(p.1) Introduction
Power, Prose, and Purse
Molly Brown, Saul Levmore, Martha C. Nussbaum
Oxford University Press

This introductory essay broadly describes the connections between money, literature, and law that are explored in greater depth in each chapter of the volume. It explains the chronological parameters of the volume, the period framed by the Industrial Revolution and the Great Depression. Money and literature are both useful interpretive tools for understanding the law, and all three, especially when working together, allow for greater understanding of human society. The introduction gives a brief description of each chapter but also foreshadows the themes that recur throughout the volume and directs the reader’s attention to the interaction between storytelling and social science.

Keywords:   money, law, literature, Great Depression, Industrial Revolution, novels, social science, economics, interdisciplinary
