I trust you are asking about good texts on the subject, since volumes have been written on your topics which even, given the number of pages they cover, come short of the mark.
Look for the pertinent volumes in the series by Will (and Ariel) Durant - The Story of Civilization. You are most likely going to want to look at Volumes 8 and 9.
Social histories are a relatively new genre of academic endeavour. One major work to look for in terms of societal impact and the changing economy throughout time is:Source(s): Fischer: David Hackett - The Great Wave: Price Revolutions and the Rhythm of History.
