Unlike most existing textbooks on the ecomic history of modern Europe, which offer a country-by-country approach, The Cambridge Ecomic History of Modern Europe rethinks Europe's ecomic history since 1700 as unified and pan-European, with the material organized by topic rather than by country. This second volume tracks Europe's ecomic history through three major phases since 1870. The first phase was an age of globalization and of European ecomic 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 t only within Europe but also between Europe and the global ecomy. Leading authors offer comprehensive and accessible introductions to these patterns of globalization and deglobalization as well as to key themes in modern ecomic history such as ecomic growth, business cycles, sectoral developments, and population and living standards.
