Cultures merging : a historical and economic critique of culture by E. L Jones( )

30 editions published between 2006 and 2019 in 3 languages and held by 2,508 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The European miracle : environments, economies, and geopolitics in the history of Europe and Asia by E. L Jones( Book )

68 editions published between 1981 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,802 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Why did modern states and economies develop first in the peripheral and late-coming culture of Europe? This historical puzzle looms behind every study of industrialization and economic development. In this analytical and comparative work Eric Jones sees the economic condition forming where natural environments and political systems meet: Europe's economic rise is explained as a favoured interaction between them, contrasting with the frustrating pattern of their interplay in the Ottoman empire, India and China. For the third edition Professor Jones has added a new Preface and Afterword
Locating the industrial revolution : inducement and response by E. L Jones( )

21 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1,602 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The familiar industrialisation of northern England and less familiar de-industrialisation of the south are shown to have depended on a common process. Neither rise nor decline resulted from differences in natural resource endowments, since they began before the use of coal and steam in manufacturing. Instead, political certainty, competitive ideology and Enlightenment optimism encouraged investment in transport and communications. This integrated the national market, intensifying competition between regions and altering economic distributions. Despite a dysfunctional landed system, agricultural innovation meant that the south's comparative advantage shifted towards the farm sector. Meanwhile its manufactures slowly declined. Once industry clustered in the less-benign northern environment, technological changes in manufacturing accumulated there. This book portrays the Industrial Revolution as deriving from economic competition within unique political arrangements
Revealed biodiversity : an economic history of the human impact by E. L Jones( )

15 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 1,432 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Revealed Biodiversity: An Economic History of the Human Impact aims to show that for several centuries environmental conditions have been substantially the product of economic fluctuations. It contests the notion of perpetual decline in species composition. The arguments are supported by far more precise historical detail than is usual in books about ecology. The need to take the gains to human society into account when assessing environmental change is strongly emphasized. The book features case studies including England, the Netherlands, USA, East Asia, Brazil, and the areas of modern agricu

Agrarian change and economic development: the historical problems by E. L Jones( Book )

28 editions published between 1969 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 620 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Agrarian Change and Economic Development is a landmark volume that examines the historical experience of the relationship between agrarian change and economic development. Because agriculture was until recently man's dominant occupation, scholars have traditionally drawn little attention to its immense historical importance. The essays in this book redress this balance, and illustrate the significance of the western world's escape from an overwhelmingly agrarian condition. It is therefore an ideal work for encouraging those concerned with current problems to perceive agricult

Landed estates and rural inequality in English history : from the mid-seventeenth century to the present by E. L Jones( )

17 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and held by 256 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on a detailed investigation of local sources, this book examines the history of the landed estate system in England since the mid-seventeenth century. over recent centuries England was increasingly occupied by landed estates run by locally dominant and nationally influential owners. Historically, newcomers adopted the behaviour of existing landowners, all of whom presided over a relatively impoverished mass of rural inhabitants. Preferences for privacy and fine views led landowners to demolish or remove some whole villages. Alongside extensive landscape remodelling, rights-of-way were often privatised, imposing a cost on the economy. Social and environmental implications of the landed system as a whole are discussed and particular attention is paid to the nineteenth-century investment of industrial profits in estates. Why was the system so attractive and how was it perpetuated? Matters of poverty and inequality have always been of perennial interest to scholars of many persuasions and to the educated public; with this important book surveying environmental concerns in addition

Barriers to growth : English economic development from the Norman conquest to industrialisation by E. L Jones( )

8 editions published between 2020 and 2021 in English and Undetermined and held by 178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book deals sequentially with major impediments to economic growth and their slow dissolution. It is original and quite different from standard economic history, which has always sought for one prime mover of the industrial revolution after another. These supposed positive forces are usually depicted as novel and little reference is made to inertia. Instead the barriers dealt with here run, in the first section, from early misallocations of resources to nineteenth-century reforms which of their nature indicate the problems to be overcome. The second section deals with more physical impediments and shocks, such as floods and settlement fires. These too are ignored in ordinary treatments, which this book will supplement or even replace. It will be of interest to academic economic historians and practitioners of neighbouring subjects such as economists, historians, historical geographers, and of course their students
Das Wunder Europa : Umwelt, Wirtschaft und Geopolitik in der Geschichte Europas und Asiens by E. L Jones( Book )

8 editions published between 1991 and 2012 in German and held by 144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jones beschreibt in seinem Werk die Entwicklung Europas in langfristiger Sicht. Dabei legt er besonderes Gewicht auf die Zeit zwischen 1400 und 1800 und auf Vergleiche mit Asien. Das System, das damals in Europa entstand, ist wichtig für die Geschichte dieses Erdteils und als Vorläufer für die USA, Kanada, Australien, Neuseeland, Lateinamerika und Südafrika." -- Herausgeber
Landscape history and rural society in southern England : an economic and environmental perspective by E. L Jones( )

5 editions published in 2021 in English and Undetermined and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book applies an economic and environmental perspective to the history of landscape and the rural economy, highlighting their inter-connections through specific case studies. After explaining how the author made his discoveries and when they started, it analyses relations between documentary and landscape evidence. It is based on exceptional first-hand observation of a dozen sites and close consideration of topics in the ecological and economic history of southern England. They range from reclaiming chalk down-land, occupying low-lying heaths and reconstructing parkland, to wool-stapling and the manufacture of gunstocks for the African slave trade. Additional themes include the tension between ecology and institutions in decisions about the location of economic activity; the decay of communal farming ahead of enclosure; and other interesting puzzles in rural economic history. This book offers an original approach to questions in economic history through its synthesis of different types of evidence. It will be of interest to a diverse range of readers because it addresses how economic change was registered in the landscape, and how that change was influenced by landscape. It is a book with highly original features, contributing simultaneously to economic, agricultural, environmental, and landscape history. Eric L. Jones is Senior Fellow at the University of Buckingham, UK
