Description

Product Description This classic book offers a broad sweep of economic history from prehistoric times to the present and explores the disparity of wealth among nations. Now in its fourth edition, A Concise Economic History of the World has been updated to reflect the stunning changes in the world economy since 1989. Truly a definitive history of globalization, the new edition has been expanded to include coverage of the most recent developments in the European Union, East Asia, and, in general, transition economies. Comprehensive and global in scope, this concise text features ample illustrations and a fully updated annotated bibliography that guides readers to the relevant scholarly literature. Now available in eleven languages, including Spanish (second edition), French, German (two volumes), Polish, and Chinese, this unique work remains an invaluable, lively, and accessible text for both undergraduate and graduate students of European economic history, the history of globalization, and world development. Review Praise for previous editions: "I have long been an admirer of Professor Cameron's published scholarship. The topics he addresses are important and he writes with remarkable clarity and grace. The level of presentation is perfect for an undergraduate audience."--Michael Moohr, Bucknell University "This book fits well with an undergraduate course in European or World Economic history. The text is strongest in describing national rivalries and why nations rose and fell."--Daniel R. Shiman, State University of New York at Oswego "I am now even happier that I have consistently assigned (this book) in my classes. Cameron's interpretations of events always seem to me both sensible and consistent."--Richard N. Langlois, University of Connecticut "A tour de force.... Manages to pack an astonishing wealth of detail on many topics, from the manorial system to the recovery and integration of Western Europe after World War II....Learned, lucid, readable, and appositely illustrated."--Journal of Economic Literature Praise for previous editions: "I have long been an admirer of Professor Cameron's published scholarship.
