Description - Global Economic History by Tirthankar Roy

What are the problems addressed by the growing field of global economic history? What debates and methodologies does it engage with?

As Global Economic History shows, there are many answers to these questions. Riello and Roy, alongside 20 leading academics from the US, UK, Europe, Australia and Japan, explain why a global perspective matters to economic history. The impressive cast recruited by the editors brings together top scholars in their respective areas of expertise, including John McNeill, Patrick O'Brien, and Prasannan Parthasarathi.

An ambitious scope of topics ranges from the `Great Divergence' to the rise of global finance, to the New World and the global silver economy. Chapters are organized both thematically (Divergence in Global History and Emergence of a World Economy), and geographically (Regional Perspectives on Global Economic Change), ensuring the global perspective required on these challenging courses today.

The result is a textbook which provides students with a quick and confident grasp of the field and its essential issues.
