About the Authors
  • Unlike most existing textbooks on the economic history of modern Europe, which offer a country-by-country approach, The Cambridge Economic History of Modern Europe rethinks Europe's economic history since 1700 as unified and pan-European, with the material organized by topic rather than by country. This second volume tracks Europe's economic history through three major phases since 1870. The first phase was an age of globalization and of European economic and political dominance that lasted until the First World War. The second, from 1914 to 1945, was one of war, deglobalization, and depression and the third was one of growing integration not only within Europe but also between Europe and the global economy. Leading authors offer comprehensive and accessible introductions to these patterns of globalization and deglobalization as well as to key themes in modern economic history such as economic growth, business cycles, sectoral developments, and population and living standards.

    • Sets the history of Europe's economy since 1870 within a comparative, pan-European framework with material organised by topic rather than by country
    • Thematic structure and extensive tables and graphs make the subject accessible to both history and economics students
    • Each chapter is written by an international team of historians and economists who are experts in their field

    Reviews & endorsements

    'This ambitious and timely book is something quite new: a multi-authored undergraduate economic history text that is resolutely pan-European in its approach. The promiscuous presence of so many nation-states in virtually every chapter is very exciting. The outcome - an explicitly comparative and interdisciplinary analysis (with lots of elementary and intermediate economics) by three dozen of the best practitioners in the field - is a resounding success.' Cormac Ó Gráda, University College Dublin

    'Earlier economic histories of Europe were organized by country, which left the reader unable to see linkages between national economies or to appreciate how the several national economies differed or were similar. This very fine treatment is thus long overdue. The editors have organized a large, talented team of specialist scholars to create a coherent, up-to-date treatment. This work will quickly find a place in both teaching and research.' Timothy W. Guinnane, Yale University

    'The first unified economic history of Modern Europe provides a wide-angle perspective on an epic process of development that transcends national boundaries. Academics, students, policymakers and interested readers will turn to the essays by leading experts in the field for many years to come.' Alan M. Taylor, University of California, Davis
