    While the early modern period has long been recognised as witnessing a growth in trade and consumerism, the majority of studies to date have tended to focus upon London and southern England. In order to provide a more balanced understanding of the dynamics at work on a national level, this book explores the local economy and waterborne trades of Newcastle... more...

  • Central Banking in a Democracyby John H. Wood

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 145.00

    The Federal Reserve System, which has been Congress?s agent for the control of money since 1913, has a mixed reputation. Its errors have been huge. It was the principal cause of the Great Depression of the 1930s and the inflation of the 1970s, and participated in the massive bailouts of financial institutions at taxpayers' expense during the recent... more...

  • The Economic Effort of War (Routledge Revivals)by R. W. B. Clarke

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 44.95

    The course of economic events from the start of the Second World War satisfied no-one. The housewife was exasperated by the rise in food prices, thousands of workers faced unemployment, and businessmen were bewildered by the flood of regulations and decrees. In this book, first published in 1940, R. W. B. Clarke explores the economic challenges that... more...

  • The History of Migration in Europeby Francesca Fauri

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 145.00

    The History of Migration in Europe belies several myths by arguing, for example, that immobility has not been the "normal" condition of people before the modern era. Migration (far from being an income-maximizing choice taken by lone individuals) is often a household strategy, and local wages benefit from migration. This book shows how ssuccesses... more...

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 44.95

  • The Afterlife of Used Thingsby Ariane Fennetaux; Amélie Junqua; Sophie Vasset

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 125.00

    Recycling is not a concept that is usually applied to the eighteenth century. ?The environment? may not have existed as a notion then, yet practices of re-use and transformation obviously shaped the early-modern world. Still, this period of booming commerce and exchange was also marked by scarcity and want. This book reveals the fascinating variety... more...
