47 editions published between 1998 and 2018 in English and held by 1,774 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Authors Pomeranz and Topik offer unique and entertaining historical perspectives on the world economy, showing that much of twentieth-century "globalization" goes back centuries." "Easily accessible to the general reader, these articles by two well-respected historians nonetheless touch on complex historical and contemporary issues. They are grouped in thematic chapters, each with an introduction drawing out some of the deeper implications for understanding how today's world economy came into being."--Jacket

The Pacific in the age of early industrialization( Book )

10 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The essays selected for this volume show how the Pacific rapidly became part of an industrializing world. Its raw materials (notably rubber and copper) were critical, some of its handicraft industries were devastated by mechanized competition, others survived and adapted, contributing to distinctive patterns of industrialization that made Japan a new center of power, and also laid the groundwork for later growth in Taiwan, Korea, and coastal China. The Pacific coast of the Americas was also first drawn into an industrial world largely as an exporter of raw materials, but North and South diverged rapidly, portending futures even more different than those of Northeast and Southeast Asia. By the 1930s - when the uneven effects of industrialization would have much to do with plunging the Pacific into war - one can already glimpse in outline the structural bases for many of the region's contemporary characteristics."--Publisher's website

With roughly 150 primary source documents and visuals, a new casebook on 'Humans and the Environment in the Second Millennium BCE,' excellent editorial apparatus, and a deeply discounted package price, this reader remains the best value in its market"--Provided by publisher

La grande divergenza : la Cina, l'Europa e la nascita dell'economia mondiale moderna by Kenneth Pomeranz( Book )

5 editions published between 2004 and 2012 in Italian and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sulla strada dello sviluppo economico-industriale, quali sono le ragioni della <<grande divergenza>> che si è aperta nell'Ottocento fra l'Europa e l'Asia? Questo volume mostra che in realtà ancora nel Settecento le condizioni dell'Europa e della Cina erano del tutto simili: per speranza di vita, consumi, mercato dei beni e dei fattori produttivi, strategie familiari, ecologia. A creare la differenza furono il carbone e i commerci con le Americhe. La combinazione di questi due fattori consentì all'Europa nord-occidentale di svilupparsi secondo un modello basato su un alto sfruttamento di risorse e una bassa intensità di lavoro, al contrario di quanto avvenne in Cina
The Cambridge world history( Book )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The era from 1400 to 1800 saw intense biological, commercial, and cultural exchanges, and the creation of global connections on an unprecedented scale. Divided into two books, Volume 6 of the 'Cambridge World History' series considers these critical transformations. The first book examines the material and political foundations of the era, including global considerations of the environment, disease, technology, and cities, along with regional studies of empires in the eastern and western hemispheres, crossroads areas such as the Indian Ocean, Central Asia, and the Caribbean, and sites of competition and conflict, including Southeast Asia, Africa, and the Mediterranean. The second book focuses on patterns of change, examining the expansion of Christianity and Islam, migrations, warfare, and other topics on a global scale, and offering insightful detailed analyses of the Columbian exchange, slavery, silver, trade, entrepreneurs, Asian religions, legal encounters, plantation economies, early industrialism, and the writing of history
