BROWSE PRINCETON'S SERIES (by title) in The Princeton Economic History of the Western World

Joel Mokyr, Series EditorTitles in the Princeton Economic History of the Western World seek to explain the full range of Western economic development in all of its facets: the transformation of medieval Europe from a rural to a capitalist economy; the institutions that marked the European revolutions, the demographic transition, and the changes they wrought on daily life; the rise of the modern capitalist economies; and the role that technology, commercial expansion, and the international division of labor played in fueling their growth throughout the West and the world.
