      The second half of this book deals with the so-called age of mercantilism, which, in the field of economic thought, lasted in Spain from about the middle of the sixteenth century until well into the eighteenth. Coming into this period we find ourselves caught up in current controversy. Part II: Structure In "Chapter 2: Some Key Developments in First-Millennium Babylonia", Pirngruber summarizes political and environmental events that led to the combination of extensive urbanization, population growth, and transformed irrigation system that produced a regionally interdependent enterprise during the Neo-Babylonian period. 8.
