Product Description A Concise Economic History of the World offers a broad sweep of economic history from prehistoric times to the present. Comprehensive and now even more global in scope, the fifth edition examines the ongoing effects of globalization on both past civilizations and our current global economy. With illustrations, maps, charts, and a fully updated annotated bibliography, this unique work remains an invaluable, lively, and accessible text for both undergraduate and graduate students of general economic history, the history of globalization, and world development. Review "This is an important book. It is the best textbook on world/European economic history on the market, and Professors Cameron and Neal should be thanked for doing a service to the field of economic history."--George R. Boyer, Cornell University, ILR School "I think this is the best current economic history text available for both graduate and undergraduate use. It is very well written and infinitely accessible to advanced students (from sophomores on up)."--Giulio Gallarotti, Wesleyan University "Fantastic introduction of the economic history of the world." - Oded Galor, Brown University, Fellow, Department of Economics, Hebrew University "I would describe it as the current best comprehensive survey text of the history of the world economy."--David Clingingsmith, Case Western University About the Author Larry Neal is Professor of Economics at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
