"The data ... collected is so impressive, and the economic history so difficult to master, that most [scholars] will need this book on their shelves." · Eric Dorn Brose, Drexel University
“…an outstanding primer on the 19th Century German economy… professors and graduate students will certainly profit from the wealth of statistical data assembled from classic and current studies...there are many ways to read this insightful, well-crafted book [that] deserves a wide readership.” · German History
In the 19th Century, economic growth was accompanied by large-scale structural change, known as industrialization, which fundamentally affected western societies. Even though industrialization is on the wane in some advanced economies and we are experiencing substantial structural changes again, the causes and consequences of these changes are inextricably linked with earlier industrialization.This means that understanding 19th Century industrialization helps us understand problems of contemporary economic growth. There is no recent study on economic developments in 19th Century Germany. So this concise volume, written specifically with students of German and economic history in mind, will prove to be most valuable, not least because of its wealth of statistical data.
