9789004194397: Shipping and Economic Growth 1350-1850 (Global Economic History)

Shipping was the most dynamic sector of the economy of Europe from the fourteenth into the nineteenth century. Europeans who moved goods by sea dramatically improved their efficiency, laying the foundations for greater economic growth to come and for domination of the world’s oceans.

From the Back Cover:

In sixteen essays authors explore the dramatic rise in the efficiency of European shipping in the three centuries before the Industrial Revolution. They offer reasons for the greater success of the sector than any other in making better use of labour. They describe the roots - political, organizational, technological, ecological, human - of rising productivity, treating those sources both theoretically and empirically. Comparisons with China show why Europeans came to dominate Asian waters. Building on past research, the volume is a statement of what is known about that critical sector of the early modern European economy and indicates the contribution shipping made to the emergence of the West as the dominant force on the oceans of the world. Contributors include: Kent G. Deng, Xavier Duran, Paul van Dyke, Regina Grafe, Jelle van Lottum, Rui Loureiro, Jan Lucassen, Patrick O'Brien, Jari Ojala, David Ormrod, Am lia Pol nia, Milja van Tielhof, Richard W. Unger, Lex Herma van Voss, Nuala Zahedieh, Jan Luiten van Zanden.
