    Reviews & endorsements

    "...a very valuable collection of papers....The long-term perspective provided by economic history, as applied here, provides valuable insights into postwar growth. Likewise, the focus on events and institutions, as opposed to structural variables alone, allows for informed and sharp comparative analysis....This is an important contribution to the fields of economic history, and the political economy of postwar Europe." Choice

    "Students of the European economy, economic historians and economists interested in empirical evidence on economic growth will greatly appreciate the many insights in this volume." David Cleeton, Eastern Economic Journal
