Summary

The third edition of this highly successful text takes a broad look at the world's economic history from pre-historic times to the present. Placing contemporary world economy in historical perspective, it explores the critical reasons why some nations have become rich while others failed. The author expands coverage of the EEC, now the European Union, and extensively restructures his work on the non-Western world in light of recent scholarship. He also gives special attention to developments in the former Soviet Union and Eastern Europe. Now available in 11 languages, including Spanish (second edition), French, German (2 volumes), Polish, and Chinese, this uniquely comprehensive text remains an invaluable, lively, and accessible text for both undergraduate and graduate students of European economic history and world development.

This work examines events in world history that, in the author's view, "have contributed to prosperity and material well-being -- that is, to 'development' -- as well as those that have resulted in continued 'under development' for large areas of the world.The first half of the book surveys world history from ancient times to the eighteenth century, {focusing on} the origins of Western prosperity. The second half investigates . . . the industrialization and urbanization that transformed Europe and America in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries." (Publisher's note) Annotated chapter bibliographies. Index.
