Capitalism : a short history by Jürgen Kocka( Book )

58 editions published between 2013 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 1,655 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author provides a concise and comprehensive history of capitalism within a global perspective from its medieval origins to the 2008 financial crisis and beyond. The author offers an account of capitalism that weighs its great achievements against its great costs, crises, and failures. The book puts the rise of capitalist economies in social, political, and cultural context, and shows how their current problems and foreseeable future are connected to a long history. The book describes how capitalist expansion was connected to colonialism; how industrialism brought unprecedented innovation, growth, and prosperity but also increasing inequality; and how managerialism, financialization, and globalization later changed the face of capitalism. The book also addresses the idea of capitalism in the work of thinkers such as Marx, Weber, and Schumpeter, and chronicles how criticism of capitalism is as old as capitalism itself, fed by its persistent contradictions and recurrent emergencies.--

Comparative and transnational history : Central European approaches and new perspectives by Heinz-Gerhard Haupt( )

18 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in English and held by 1,033 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the 1970s West German historiography has been one of the main arenas of international comparative history. It has produced important empirical studies particularly in social history as well as methodological and theoretical reflections on comparative history. During the last twenty years however, this approach has felt pressure from two sources: cultural historical approaches, which stress microhistory and the construction of cultural transfer on the one hand, global history and transnational approaches with emphasis on connected history on the other. This volume introduces the reader to some of the major methodological debates and to recent empirical research of German historians, who do comparative and transnational work
Business in the age of extremes : essays in modern German and Austrian economic history by Hartmut Berghoff( )

19 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in English and German and held by 1,018 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This collection of essays explores the impact that nationalism, capitalism, and socialism had on economics during the first half of the twentieth century. Focusing on Central Europe, contributors examine the role that businesspeople and enterprises played in Germany's and Austria's paths to the catastrophe of Nazism. Based on new archival research, the essays gathered here ask how the business community became involved in the political process and describes the consequences arising from that involvement. Particular attention is given to the responses of individual businesspeople to changing political circumstances and their efforts to balance the demands of their consciences with the pursuit for profit"--

Work in a modern society : the German historical experience in comparative perspective( )

15 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in English and held by 611 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Whereas the history of workers and labour movements has been widely researched, the history of work has been rather neglected by comparison. This volume offers original contributions that deal with cultural, social and theoretical aspects of the history of work in modern Europe, including the relations between gender and work, working and soldiering, work and trust, constructions and practices. The volume focusses on Germany but also places case studies in a broader European context. It thus offers an insight into social and cultural history as practiced by German-speaking scholars today but also introduces the reader to ongoing research in this field."--BOOK JACKET
