Global Capitalism (Paperback)
"One of the most comprehensive histories of modern capitalism yet written." —Michael Hirsh, New York Times
An authoritative, insightful, and highly readable history of the twentieth-century global economy, updated with a new chapter on the early decades of the new century. Global Capitalism guides the reader from the globalization of the early twentieth century and its swift collapse in the crises of 1914–45, to the return to global integration at the end of the century, and the subsequent retreat in the wake of the financial crisis of 2008.
— Washington Post
Essential reading for anyone who wants to understand the history of globalization from 1870 to the present.
