about

This book is the first quantitative description of Europe¿s economic development at a regional level over the entire 20th century. Based on a new and comprehensive set of data, it brings together a group of leading economic historians in order to describe and analyze the development of European regions, both for nation states and for Europe as a whole. This provides a new transnational perspective on Europe¿s quantitative development, offering for the first time a systematic long-run analysis of national policies independently from the use of national statistical units. The new transnational dimension of data allows for the analysis of national policies in a more thorough way than ever before.
