During the 1870 to 1970 period, Sweden experimented with a number of social policy measures, including far-reaching egalitarian policies and an extensive welfare system, yet they still enjoyed one of the most rapid growth rates in the world economy. These policy experiments in large part marked the beginnings of the academic field of economic history, nurtured most carefully by Eli F. Heckscher. This collection of reprinted articles by various authors reflects upon Sweden's economic maturity from a poor preindustrial nation to a wealthy European model economy. The development of Sweden's banking system plays prominently in the discussion, as does the importance of exports and transportion lines to this geographically small country with a long coastline. But perhaps the most attention goes to how the Swedish economy thrived while steadfastly emphasizing their public welfare system. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR

Interest in Italy's development is warranted by the size of the country, the level of income it has achieved and the lessons its particular story may contain. The relevant literature is extensive and includes studies by social historians as well as by economic historians and economists. Most of the literature available is in Italian, although the work in English is growing. This compreheensive volume brings together in an easily accessible form the main articles, some of which are published here in English for the first time. The introduction aims to provide the non-Italian reader with a general overview of the discussion that forms the background to the essays collected. The volume contains chapters on the development process, agriculture, industrialization, technical progress, industrial policy, the macroeconomic framework and the issue of geographical and economic dualism.

Twenty-seven articles published between 1937 and 1993 provide a broad overview of the Belgian economy, focusing not only on the strictly economic aspects of development but also on related aspects such as technological progress, monetary and financial policy, and standard of living. The studies address topics such as the problem of de- industrialization, structural unemployment, industrial restructuring, the export-oriented nature of Belgian industry and its competitiveness on the international marketplace, and institutional developments and adaptations.

Agriculture and Economic Development in Europe Since 1870

Agriculture and Economic Development in Europe Since 1870

Whilst many books on the European economy have focused on the analysis of its industrial sectors, this book draws attention to the often ignored contribution made by the development of European agriculture over the past two centuries.

Whilst many books on the European economy have focused on the analysis of its industrial sectors, this book draws attention to the often ignored contribution made by the development of European agriculture over the past two centuries. In doing so, the authors adopt a revisionist perspective on the subject, addressing the lack of coherent study of the agricultural sector and reassessing old theories about the links between agricultural and economic development. In focusing on those countries which by 1870 still had a large agricultural sector, namely, France, Germany, Italy, Denmark, The Netherlands, Sweden, Spain, Portugal, Poland, Hungary, Greece and Turkey, this book determines the role of the agricultural sector in the economic development of Europe. These chapters demonstrate how the rate of development in the agricultural sector depended on specific industrial, political and market conditions; the diversity of ways and timings through which transformation was achieved is also considered.

Upon its initial publication in 1973 this was the first textbook to present a unified view and comprehensive treatment of the economic development of Europe from a continental rather than a British perspective. At the same time, it is more than mere textbook: it is an interpretive analysis of a wide range of research on the subject in many countries which explores the objective validity of earlier theories and provides an ideal starting point for further research into economic development and European history. The work deals mainly with Western Europe, but in principally studying both France and Germany up to 1870 the authors by no means neglect the smaller countries. Indeed, the work is unusual in dealing fully with the Scandinavian countries and others, such as Switzerland and Belgium. This is a reissue of the fully revised and corrected second edition of the work, first published in 1979.
