The European Economy, 1750-1914: A Thematic Approach
This book offers new perspectives on the economic development of Europe during the critical period of industrialization for much of the continent, from 1750-1914. It eschews the traditional approach of studying the major countries, nation-by-nation and replaces it with a continent-wide thematic study which deals with each of the main economic sectors in turn.
