- Available for pre-order. Item will ship after February 25, 2022
First published in 1975, The Economic Modernisation of France presents the study of economic developments in France between 1730 and 1880. This period is conceived as one of growth in production within pre-industrial economic structures, succeeded from 1840-50 by rapid structural transformation and the creation of an industrial economy. Divided into four major parts it discusses themes like communication and the development of commerce; agriculture; industrial development; and population. Rich in primary sources, this will be an essential read for scholars and researchers of French history, European history, economic history, and history in general.
