Preface

We began to write this book together because we had both taught the subject for many years and thought that there was a real need for a textbook in English setting out and analysing in some detail the work that has been done on the modern economic history of continental Europe. We knew that we could not claim to be experts in all the fields we had to cover but we felt that this would be more than offset by the opportunity to compare experiences within Europe and to offer a consistent approach to our problems.
