Chapter Summary

Positing a meaningful connection between the Braudel who furnished the post-war generation with its most comprehensive and integrated visions of the Mediterranean world and the Cold War ideologue who has projected a twenty-first century torn between rival cultural zones. In fairness to the author and his time, one must admit that even now cross-cultural migration is a contested domain of inquiry, treated in parts by different branches of the social sciences, from geography to cultural anthropology. The Inquisition also illustrates how moral economies of exclusion relied upon a redistributive mechanism, although not all of the goods produced should be measured in purely quantitative or material terms. In accounting for the historical differences in the development of discrete moral economies of inclusion/exclusion it is necessary to consider the longue duree of interaction between emerging states, markets, and religious movements which allowed/impeded societies to institutional relatively different capacities to absorb cultural diversity.

Keywords: cross-cultural migration; discrete moral economies; mediterranean world; post-war generation; religious movements; rival cultural zones
