"...the editors and authors deserve praise for delivering a lively, clearly written discussion of an important theme, a significant addition to our understanding of fundamental social relationships and a model for future research." Business History Review
"In general, as the authors are eminent economic historians they are aware that economies change over time." Journal of World History, Frank B. Tipton, University of Sydney
This book, first published in 2003, addresses the rarely explored subject of the reciprocal relationships between nationalism, nation and state-building, and economic change. Analysis of the economic element in the building of nations and states cannot be confined to Europe, and therefore these diverse yet interlinked case-studies cover all continents.
