Economically, at least, the start to the nineties has been less than auspicious. Amid growing fears of a slump to match the thirties, for many, the feeling must be one of deja-vu. Yet despite the vicissitudes of the twentieth century, the European economy has proved remarkably resilient, and past history does not suggest that current problems will prove insoluble. As with the earlier edition, The European Economy 1914-1980 , in this new up-dated and revised volume, Professor Aldcroft presents a succinct and lucid summary of this past. He examines the economic development of Europe between 1914 and 1990 and provides a broad survey of the main economic trends and forces which have been at work this century. This text divides into clearly defined periods: from the depression of the twenties and thirties; the upset of two world wars; the post-war boom; through the oil crises and recurrent inflation and unemployment. This new edition has been modified to take account of the decade 1980-90, and as such, covers some of the most dramatic and profound economic events of the twentieth century. The work includes two additional chapters, one dealing with the Wrstern European economies, and in particular, the fight against inflation and unemployment, which have largely dominated the period. The author also considers the impact of growing economic convergence. Chapter 9 assesses the astounding events in Eastern Europe and the initial movements towards the establishment of market economies. Ultimately, The European Economy 1914-1990 presents an invaluable guide to the major economic developments of the twentieth century.From the Publisher:
