This treatise outlines the nature of money, the creation of money and the uses of money from an operational perspective.  Perhaps a brief excerpt from the conclusion is a good introduction:

We need to recognize that the monetary system is important. It is not merely-or even mainly-used to lubricate exchange of goods and services. From its origins, the monetary system has played an important role in pursuit of the public interest. It also is used in pursuit of the private interest. And it is-especially in recent years-used by a rapacious elite of Wall Street insiders in their own selfish interests.
