The Cambridge Economic History of Modern Europe

Back to European history

Editors: Professor Stephen Broadberry, Professor Kevin O’Rourke

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 organised by topic rather than by country. The first volume is centred on the transition to modern economic growth, which first occurred in Britain before spreading to other parts of western Europe by 1870. The second volume tracks Europe's economic performance since 1870 through three major phases of globalization, de-globalization and reglobalization. An international team of authors offer comprehensive and accessible introductions to the major themes of modern economic history, including trade; urbanization; aggregate economic growth; the major sectors of agriculture, industry and services; and the development of living standards, including the distribution of income. The quantitative approach makes use of modern economic analysis in a way that is easy for students to understand.
