Editorial Reviews

"A major contribution to our knowledge of European economic history. It is based on extensive research in German sources and in its German version has already become something of a classic. It should become standard reading for students doing graduate work in German history and economichistory and should be required for the large and growing number of scholars now engaged in study and discussion of the process of industrialization."--David Landes, Harvard University
