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 LiteratureFrom the Publisher:
This is the fourth edition of this successful textbook, which was first written by Rondo Cameron (the third edition having published in 1997). As with previous editions, the book covers economic history from pre-history to the present. It offers an introduction to the study of both economic history and economic development.
