The The Economic History of Britain since 1700 3 Volume Paperback Set The Economic History of Britain since 1700: Volume 1: 1700-1860 by Roderick Floud (Provost, London Guildhall University)

It will appeal particularly to first and second year university students, but is also suitable for anyone interested in the history of the British economy. Volume One covers the period 1700-1860, that of Britain's rise to relative economic supremacy.

"For the wealth of information contained herein, this set is highly recommended for all history reference collections." Reference Book Review
"...a kaleidoscope of great scholarship." William P. Kennedy, Times Higher Education Supplement
"'Floud and McCloskey' is both the most comprehensive undergraduate textbook on British economic history since the eighteenth century and a ready starting point for graduate and scholarly research on the subject. No economic historian of Britain should be without these volumes....This edition will prove to be even more valuable than the first....The quality of the writing and the analysis is uniformly high and the interpretations are usually convincing if sometimes provocative....[A]n effective teaching and research tool." William J. Hausman, Albion
