The rise of fiscal states : a global history, 1500-1914 by Bartolomé Yun Casalilla( )

22 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in English and held by 660 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From the Netherlands to the Ottoman Empire, to Japan and India, this groundbreaking volume confronts the complex and diverse problem of the formation of fiscal states in Eurasia between 1500 and 1914. This series of country case studies from leading economic historians reveals that distinctive features of the fiscal state appeared across the region at different moments in time as a result of multiple independent but often interacting stimuli such as internal competition over resources, European expansion, international trade, globalisation and war. The essays offer a comparative framework for re-examining the causes of economic development across this period and show, for instance, the central role that the more effective fiscal systems of Europe during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries played in the divergence of east and west as well as the very different paths to modernisation taken across the world"--

The Industrial Revolution and British Society is an original and wide-ranging textbook survey of the principal economic and social aspects of the Industrial Revolution in Britain in the eighteenth- and early nineteenth-centuries.

The Industrial Revolution and British Society offers a topical overview on perspectives of this central historical problem, and will be widely used as a course text by teachers in the field

Exceptionalism and industrialisation : Britain and its European rivals, 1688-1815 by Leandro Prados de la Escosura( Book )

3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 280 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book explores the question of British exceptionalism in the period from the Glorious Revolution to the Congress of Vienna. Leading historians examine why Great Britain emerged from years of sustained competition with its European rivals in a discernible position of hegemony in the domains of naval power, empire, global commerce, agricultural efficiency, industrial production, fiscal capacity and advanced technology. They deal with Britain's unique path to industrial revolution and distinguish four themes on the interactions between its emergence as a great power and as the first industrial nation."--Jacket

Oxford atlas of world history( )

10 editions published between 1999 and 2005 in English and held by 164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Oxford's Atlas of World History is the result of more than three years' intensive work by a specialist team of academics, editors, and cartographers. It presents the story of humanity in its physical setting, from the evolution of Homo sapiens through the start of the 21st century. Truly international in its approach, the atlas incorporates the latest research into Asian, African, and South American history, as well as the traditional core of North American and European events." "The atlas is organized into five parts corresponding with the eras studied by world historians today: The Ancient World, The Medieval World,The Early Modern World, The Age of Revolutions, and The Twentieth Century. Each part opens with an introduction, highlighting the main themes of the period, followed by individual spreads covering specific regions and events with maps, text, illustrations, and captions." "A comprehensive index of more than 8,000 entries includes numerous alternative name forms used over the centuries. The atlas closes with a bibliography that provides a booklist for suggested further reading." "The atlas features some 450 specially created color maps illustrating the major themes and events of world history, 100 photographs, 60 diagrams and 200,000 words of explanatory text. Uniquely for such an atlas, the entire work is thoroughly cross-referenced, allowing the reader to move backwards and forwards in time or across the world from region to region, following themes or lines of inquiry across the map spreads." "Created to fulfill the needs of both the general reader and the student, Oxford's Atlas of World History represents an exciting alternative to histories narrowly focused on the experience and perspectives of North American and European history. Covering all the continents, and going back through twelve millennia, it provides a detailed account of humanity's long journey to today's world."--BOOK JACKET
