Praise for previous editions: "I have long been an admirer of Professor Cameron's published scholarship. The topics he addresses are important and he writes with remarkable clarity and grace. The level of presentation is perfect for an undergraduate audience."--Michael Moohr, Bucknell University"This book fits well with an undergraduate course in European or World Economic history. The text is strongest in describing national rivalries and why nations rose and fell."--Daniel R. Shiman, State University of New York at Oswego"I am now even happier that I have consistently assigned (this book) in my classes. Cameron's interpretations of events always seem to me both sensible and consistent."--Richard N. Langlois, University of Connecticut"A tour de force.... Manages to pack an astonishing wealth of detail on many topics, from the manorial system to the recovery and integration of Western Europe after World War II....Learned, lucid, readable, and appositely illustrated."--Journal of Economic Literature

There are some significant limitations. The coverage of non-western economies, particularly China and India, is not very good. There is a strong element of the outmoded concept of the "Asiatic Mode of Production" which leaves a somewhat misleading impression of the importance of the Chinese economy. Similarly, there is little discussion of the negative impacts of European expansion and globalization. There is underestimation of the importance of science in the Industrial Revolution. Not surprising in such a far-reaching book, there are a number of smaller errors. 18th century Britain, for example, did not have a small bureaucracy. Qing China did not huddle behind the Great Wall. The Qing actually vanquished the Central Asian nomads.
