Description

Mark Twain quipped, "The lack of money is the root of all evil," and Oscar Wilde famously claimed, "When I was young I thought that money was the most important thing in life; now that I am old I know that it is." What do we really know about money? Elliot Engel traces the fascinating story of money - beginning with where, when and why it was first invented to how it developed and to what its future might be.
Using anecdotes, analysis and large doses of humor, historian Elliot Engel brings to life this most universal of topics. He has taught at UNC Chapel Hill, NC State University and Duke University. He earned his Ph.D. as a Woodrow Wilson Fellow at UCLA. Engel has written 10 books, multiple plays and a PBS series on Charles Dickens. For his scholarship and teaching, he received North Carolina's Adult Education Award, NC State's Alumni Professorship and the Victorian Society's Award of Merit. Most recently, for his 30 years of academic work and service in promoting Charles Dickens, he was nominated and inducted into the Royal Society of Arts in England.

Elliot Engel is sponsored in part by Brightmore of Wilmington.
