Review:

A masterly survey of the major economic developments and changes of the last two hundred years, sharply and ironically observed, and elegantly written. -- Guardian

An original and masterly reinterpretation of Western economic (not to speak of social and political) history, [from] by far the most gifted economic historian now writing. -- The Listener
