Product description

Review

"The first edition has long been a classic in the field...In 1969, Landes undertook the heroic task of surveying modern technological history. This path-breaking work asked the right questions, and provided insightful and balanced answers. It still repays reading by scholars of technological and economic history." Rick Szostak, The International History Review

"An unbeatable introduction to the economic history of the industrial and technologiocal revolutions in Western Europe." Military Review

Book Description

For over thirty years David Landes's Unbound Prometheus has offered an unrivalled history of the making of a modern, industrialised Europe. Now, in this updated edition, he takes the opportunity to reframe and reassert his original arguments in the light of debates about globalisation and comparative economic growth.
