Gold offers a lively, critical look at the cultural history of the 'noblest' of metals, examining the history of gold broadly across many cultures and time periods: from controversies surrounding its religious use to its place in the history of colonialism to its modern role in science, gold has played so many roles that it is difficult to fasten the metal itself in one's sights.Together, the book and its many images explore perceptions, myths, stories and facts about gold over the centuries and across the world, providing compelling examples from history, art, literature and film and bringing the story up to the present, a time when the anxieties surrounding gold have changed, but the persistent lust for gold continues to produce new moral and physical perils.
