The author, D’Maris Coffman, is the Director of Centre for Financial History, Newnham College, University of Cambridge. Most of her current research focuses on the role of state finance in the development of capital markets in eighteenth- and nineteenth-century Europe and the consequences of the growth of the fiscal state for agricultural commodity markets.
Understanding Risk: Learning from History is a collaboration between the Centre for Financial History and the Centre for Risk Studies to explore financial risk through historical research and develop authoritative historical perspectives on financial crises.
