Product description


"This book will serve as an eminently useful touchstone, not only for German, economic, and comparative history, but also for studies in political economy and for globalization generally. Useful for graduate students, faculty, and research libraries especially." - Choice

..". an admirable book in many respects. Its author displays great sensitivity to the political complexities involved in making economic policy and a willingness to concede that economic factors, whether 'underlying' or manifest in specific interests, do not always explain policy changes... Unlike some economic historians, the author not only acknowledges problems with the data he must use but also takes serious account of those problems in developing his analysis. The range of theories he employs to frame his interpretation is broad and his discussions of them are thoughtful... constitutes a major contribution to German economic history." - German History

"Torp has produced an intelligent book, which deserves to be read by any serious scholar of modern German trade policy and economic history...[His] prodigious research on the dimensions of German trade and the embeddedness of German tariff policy within an integrating global capitalist system will serve historians in all kinds of important ways." - Journal of Modern History

About the Author

Cornelius Torp is Lecturer in the Department of History at the Martin Luther University of Halle (Germany). He is the editor of Imperial Germany Revisited: Continuing Debates and New Perspectives (with Sven Oliver Muller, 2011) and the author of Max Weber und die preussischen Junker (1998).
