Description - Patterns of European Industrialisation by Richard Sylla

Interest in the historical development of the European economy has been heightened by the collapse of the iron curtain and the approach of 1992 in the European Community. Is the economic history of Europe that of an integrated economy or of many separate economies? This volume illustrates the changes in our understanding of Europe's nineteenth century economic development that have taken place in the last quarter of a century. Alexander Gerschenkron's bold interpretation of European industrialization is a starting point for each of the chapters. His grand synthesis has been challenged by a number of later writers, but a new one has not emerged to replace it, despite the analytical opportunities such a synthesis might offer. The contributors to this volume, all of them leading economic historians, present and discuss the latest research findings in their fields. One group of chapters is organised thematically whilst another set looks at recent interpretations of the modernization experiences of the key nations. The editor's introduction considers the benefits and difficulties of comparative economic history and of attempts to achieve a synthesis of Europe's experiences with industrialization.
