":Since his retirement from Harvard in 1949, Abbott Payson Usher has continued to enrich the study of economic history both by his teaching and his researchy. Work as a visiting professor at the University of Wisconsin and at Yale has been combined with the publication of several important articles on industrial location and on methodology. Most recently a major revision of his best-known piece of research, A History of Mechanical Inventions, has been issued, appearing within a few months of his seventieth birthday. It is appropriate therefore that the attempt should be made in this volume to define some of the main currents in economic history-writing in the twentieth century, and to estimate from present perspectives the position of Professor Usher's work in relation to them"--Dedication, page [v]
