Wealth & poverty : an economic history of the twentieth century by Sidney Pollard( Book )

28 editions published between 1990 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 1,220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The world in which an empire could be gained or lost on a battlefield has long since passed into one where power means production and where empires grow out of industry and commerce. From the collapse of once-mighty Britain, with its closed factories and lost colonies, to the rise of Japan out of the destruction of war, it is economic developments, to an unprecedented extent, that have shaped the history of our century. With over 300 photographs and 50 pieces of full-color artwork and maps, Wealth and Poverty offers a lively, accessible survey of the economic history of the twentieth century. From the Russian Revolution to the roaring twenties and the Great Depression, to war and the Marshall Plan, to the rise of the Far East and the 1973 OPEC oil embargo, the authors bring the rapid changes of the past nine decades to life, vividly demonstrating the central role of economics in shaping our times. Edited by Sidney Pollard--joined by consultant editors Carlo Cipolla and David Landes--this volume interweaves political and economic developments, probing the rise of new technology, the impact of war and revolution, the challenge of socialism, and the emergence of multinationals. Special features debate issues of particular importance, such as urban unemployment, the destruction of rain forests, and Japanese management techniques. And throughout, scores of informatively captioned photographs and detailed capsule biographies bring the images and personalities of the century to life

These six papers were originally delivered to a conference at Sheffield University in 1969 and represent an overview of a research project led by Professor Pollard, which aimed to construct a series of annual figures of capital formation for the Industrial Revolution in Britain - both in aggregate and broken down into main sectors. Each paper is accompanied by a summary of the discussion which followed.

Marginal Europe : the contribution of marginal lands since the Middle Ages by Sidney Pollard( Book )

14 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The momentum of the British industrial revolution arose mostly in regions poorly endowed by nature, badly located, and considered backward and poor by contemporaries. Sidney Pollard examines the initially surprising contribution made by the population of these and other 'marginal areas' (mountains, forests and marshes) to the economic development of Europe since the Middle Ages. He provides case studies of periods in which marginal areas took the lead in economic development, such as the Dutch economy in its Golden Age, and in the British industrial revolution
