An economic history of Britain since 1700, in three volumes by thirty-nine eminent historians and economists, this book will succeed the first edition of "Floud and McCloskey" (published in 1981) as the leading textbook on its subject. The text has a firm economic basis, but emphasizes the historical context and chronology and is written in straightforward and jargon-free English. Volume 1 covers the period 1700-1860, that of Britain's rise to relative economic supremacy. Volume 2 discusses the period 1860-1939, that of the height of British economic power and of painful readjustment after 1914. Volume 3 considers the period since 1939, that of relative economic decline and of increasing involvement with the European Community.

Review:

"For the wealth of information contained herein, this set is highly recommended for all history reference collections." Reference Book Review

"...a kaleidoscope of great scholarship." William P. Kennedy, Times Higher Education Supplement

"'Floud and McCloskey' is both the most comprehensive undergraduate textbook on British economic history since the eighteenth century and a ready starting point for graduate and scholarly research on the subject. No economic historian of Britain should be without these volumes....This edition will prove to be even more valuable than the first....The quality of the writing and the analysis is uniformly high and the interpretations are usually convincing if sometimes provocative....[A]n effective teaching and research tool." William J. Hausman, Albion
