    Genre: Non-Military History
    Considering Europe as a whole rather than as a mosaic of individual states, Francois Crouzet presents here an accessible, engaging history of the European economy during the second millennium.
    Stressing the common economic institutions shared over time by the different regions of Europe and the networks of relations that have linked them, Crouzet examines pan- European changes and integration rather than merely the particular experiences of individual countries. A History of the European Economy, 1000-2000 goes beyond addressing the historical ramifications of trade in the European economy to encompass problems such as the diffusion of technology, the migration of capital and labor, diasporas and minorities, and national diversity. By stressing the historical origins of the drive toward European integration and its progress all the way to the birth of the euro, Crouzet delivers an original and comprehensive overview of European economic history.

    "A History of the European Economy, 1000-2000 gives a very clear and well-documented overview of Europe's economic development from the moment it emerged as an integrating economic system in the late Middle Ages up to the present. Francois Crouzet's excellent blending of the results of new research with the traditional historiography brings a substantial contribution to the field." - Herman Van der Wee, Leuven University, Belgium"

    Crouzet (emeritus, history, U. of Paris-Sorbonne, France) offers a history of the European economy, beginning with its emergence in the 13th century. He then analyzes the main characteristics of the economic system, discusses the industrial revolution, and surveys the disasters that struck from 1914 onward, the European economy's post- WWII renaissance, and its present crisis and decline.
