Editorial Reviews

Review

It is rare to read a work of such originality and creativity, as well as breadth of ambition: With Reinert's evidence in hand, the entire history of economic thought and the origins of imperial industrialism will have to be reconsidered. (Jacob Soll, Rutgers University)

Translating Empire convincingly argues that the development of eighteenth-century political economy must be understood in the context of the often brutal rivalries unfolding in Europe and its colonial peripheries. It is a welcome antidote to the historical literature that has used the discourse of free trade to explain Enlightenment-era political economy. (Paul Cheney, University of Chicago)
