More Information
This major collection presents the most important articles and papers tracing the growth and development of Germany – the most powerful economy in Europe – since 1870.

It begins with a general overview of German economic development including an exploration of trends, cycles and structural change; the place of the German economy in the world economy and its performance in comparison with other countries; and an investigation of its economic development from a microeconomic perspective, with studies on the rise of German enterprises.

It also investigates particular problems of certain periods in German history. Topics covered include: industrialization, growth and the role of agriculture in Imperial Germany; the inflation, hyper-inflation and depression of the inter-war years, the end of the Weimar Republic and the War economy of the Nazi period; and the separate developments of East and West Germany after World War II.
Critical Acclaim
