This is the best economic history text that I have read to date. It covers everything you would need to know and has a vast amount of information. It does not just cover theories of economic development but gives a mass of detail to show how these theories work in practice. I read this on Kindle but will now buy the Book as it is a most valuable resource to consult with.

A continental view that combines economic history with economic theory.Considers sectoral development, business cycles,growth and the effects on population and living standards. A broad scope well supported by graphs and tables of data.
Highly recommended.

i think this is a great and comprehensive book, it deals with most if not all economic aspects of the period(s) with good tables conveying the data in a clear and concise manner.

this book is definetly great if you also have "monitoring the world economy 1829-1992"

(as with all reviews, consider this one somewhat biased ;) i am sure that there may be better ones out there)

This is a truly amazing read.
The authors are fiercely neoliberal in their politics and theories.
Keynes is terrible, democratic regulation of markets are bad,'employment protection' likewise and taxes are by definition 'distortions'. Free trade, free capital movements (no 'financial repression', i.e. democratic regulation of the economy) are the ideals.
Mercifully, the history stops short af the present crises, where the whole edifice is coming tumbling down.

I appreciate the pan European approach, which makes the reader easily understand how countries differ.
The book is full of data tables and graph which make the reading boring.
