The ABC-CLIO World History Companion to Capitalism Hardback
by Larry Allen
Part of the World History Companions series
The ABC-CLIO World History Companion to Capitalism chronicles the evolution of capitalism while illuminating the challenges and opportunities it faces.
Covering the period from 1450 to the present, this comprehensive work examines the impact that concepts, laws, government policies, treaties, and people have had on the development of capitalism.
Discussions of important events, such as the Great Depression of the 1930s, illustrate not only the dynamic processes of capitalism as they are currently understood, but also the adaptations capitalism had made to avoid repetitions of similar events.
Written clearly and concisely for the general reader, The ABC-CLIO World History Companion to Capitalism provides historical facts and social context.
Each topic is clearly defined, and its influence on the economic, political, and social fabric is explored.
Entries include bibliographic citations and cross-references to relate topics.
An introduction, illustrations, chronology, comprehensive bibliography, and subject index complete a volume that will be valuable to students of economics, political science, and world history.
