European economic history


The internationalization of the world economy and the economic political development in Europe has fostered new interests in the common economic heritage of the European countries, not least among the thousands of young students who complete parts of their education in a foreign European country.

This tale of the economic history of West European countries spanning 500 years is divided into two parts:

The first part covers the period until 1945 and highlights all the historic developments that have left their mark on Europe as we know it today:

- The early industrial development
- The spreading of industry in the 1800s
- Consequences of the First World War
- Crises and trade restrictions during the inter-war period
- Destructions of War 1940-45

The second part covers the years after World War Two and highlights the development of economic growth, the new international economic cooperation, and in particular the integration process in Europe.

The book offers easy and entertaining reading for anyone interested in Europe's history. Thousands of young students receive part of their education in a foreign European country, and this book is ideal as a textbook for both undergraduate and graduate courses in Economic History, History of Europe, and European Integration.
