"These essays demonstrate the breadth of institutionalist economic history, covering the interaction of institutions, culture, markets, and politics in shaping economic behavior and outcomes."--Choice
From the Back Cover
"The origins of modern economic growth have been a central preoccupation of economic historians since, well, there has been modern economic growth. As this volume edited by Greif, Kiesling, and Nye makes clear, that preoccupation is very much alive, and scholarship on the subject is alive and well. For readers interested in understanding the state of the art, there is no better place to start."--Barry Eichengreen, University of California, Berkeley
"Institutions, Innovation, and Industrialization provides a set of pioneering and provocative essays inspired by Joel Mokyr's vision of the integration of history and economics. This book will have an enduring impact and at the same time open up new avenues of investigation at the intersection of institutional economics and careful case-based research."--Stephen H. Haber, Stanford University
"These essays are high-level pieces, based on cutting-edge research, and with a coordinated set of themes concerned with the interaction between ideas, innovation, and institutional change. This book is an important contribution to the literature on growth and innovation."--Harold James, Princeton University
