The third edition of this highly successful text takes a broad look at the world's economic history from pre-historic times to the present. Placing contemporary world economy in historical perspective, it explores the critical reasons why some nations have become rich while others failed. The author expands coverage of the EEC, now the European Union, and extensively restructures his work on the non-Western world in light of recent scholarship. He also gives special attention to developments in Eastern Europe, the former Soviet Union, and the European Union. Now available in 11 languages, including Spanish (second edition), French, German (2 volumes), Polish, and Chinese, this uniquely comprehensive text remains an invaluable, lively, and accessible text for both undergraduate and graduate students of European economic history and world development.

Rondo Cameron, William Rand Kenan University Professor of Economics, Emory University.Review:
"Very good combination of history and economics. I replaced two texts with this one!"--Robert P. Ross, Bloomsburg University
"I have long been an admirer of Professor Cameron's published scholarship. The topics he addresses are important and he writes with remarkable clarity and grace. The level of presentation is perfect for an undergraduate audience."-- Michael Moohr, Bucknell University
"I enjoyed reading through the book. I have used it as a required text for three years now. The use of maps throughout is excellent."-- Larry Neal, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
"This book fits well with an undergraduate course in European or World Economic history. The text is strongest in describing national rivalries and why nations rose and fell." -- Daniel R. Shiman, Oswego, State University of New York
"I am now even happier that I have consistently assigned (this book) in my classes. Cameron's interpretations of events always seem to me both sensible and consistent." --Richard N. Langlois, University of Connecticut
"A very good overview of the economic history of the world."--Giulio Gallarotti, Wesleyan University
