1 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Jesse on February 12, 2008
This book is good for a survey course for undergraduate history students . Its not for any serious reading. For the first time , I feel that Cambridge Univ. Press could do such kind of poor job at bringing out a two volume set with so much paper and weight - and hardly any content for serious research or reference. I will have to return both these volumes.

It does not even have a table to show the iron production over the 18th and 19th century. Britain was dependent on almost 50% of its iron demand on imports and that also in the high quality iron from Russia and Sweden till 1800. The capital expropriation from Bengal during 1760-80 is not even mentioned. But again it is for undergraduate students.
