This bibliographic guide to the history of economic conditions in Central Europe assists in the examination of German-speaking Europe from the first efforts at economic growth and political unification through full industrialization and the disaster of war to the complexities of a region torn between competing economic and political systems. The materials included in this bibliography--monographs, dissertations, bibliographies, Festschriften, and journal articles--were selected from the holdings of a number of major European libraries. Individual chapters are devoted to the fields of agriculture, industry, business, commerce and finance. The chapters are subdivided first into the broadest subfields of economics, then by country, then by historical eras. Finally, regional and local histories are grouped first by state, then by province or canton.
