Till time's last sand, a history of the Bank of England 1694-2013
Publication year: 2017
Media class: Hardback
'Not an ordinary bank, but a great engine of state,' Adam Smith declared about the Bank of England as long ago as 1776. The Bank is now over 320 years old, and for the vast majority of that time it has been central in British history, with an increasingly high profile in recent years. There has never been a modern, authoritative and accessible single-volume history - David Kynaston's will be the first, and has been written with the Bank's cooperation and with complete access to its archives.
Very detailed account which relies too heavily on quotations from archives.Interesting comments from ex-employees on coping with dull routine work.This is best suited to financial economists/students given the jargon used.
