A Concise Economic History of the World offers a broad sweep of economic history from prehistoric times to the present. Comprehensive and now even more global in scope, the fifth edition examines the ongoing effects of globalization on both past civilizations and our current global economy. With illustrations, maps, charts, and a fully updated annotated bibliography, this unique work remains an invaluable, lively, and accessible text for both undergraduate and graduate students of general economic history, the history of globalization, and world development.
