Book Description:

The Rise of Commercial Empires is a work of major importance for the economic history of both Europe and North America. It is an analysis of a crucial transformation in the history of world trade, as through both natural situation and active state intervention London and its hinterland grew during the eighteenth century to become the first true entrepot. This was a new kind of structure at the core of the world economy, and sharply distinct from the commercial supremacy enjoyed by Holland and Amsterdam during the seventeenth century.

About the Author:

David Ormrod is Lecturer in Economic and Social History at the University of Kent at Canterbury, and a leading authority on British and Dutch commercial history in the early modern period.

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2008. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. In early modern Europe, and particularly in the Netherlands, commercial empires were held together as much by cities as by unified nation states. David Ormrod here takes a regional economy as his preferred unit of analysis, the North Sea economy: an interlocking network of trades shaped by public and private interests, and the matrix within which Anglo-Dutch competition, borrowing and collaboration took shape. He shows how England s increasingly coherent mercantilist objectives undermined Dutch commercial hegemony, in ways which contributed to the restructuring of the North Sea staplemarket system. The commercial revolution has rightly been identified with product diversification and the expansion of long-distance trading, but the reorganization of England s nearby European trades was equally important, providing the foundation for eighteenth-century commercial growth and facilitating the expansion of the Atlantic economy. With the Anglo-Scottish union of 1707, the last piece of a national British entrepot system was put into place. Seller Inventory # AAV9780521048644
