Why Europe? Why Britain? The Stories Economic Historians Tell about Industrialization

Course Description

This course investigates the question of "Why was Europe the first region to industrialize?" To a lesser extent, the question of "Why Britain" is investigated. The course opens with an overview of the divergence between Western Europe and the rest of the world followed by an examination of older theories that attempt to explain this divergence. Finally, the class will analyze more recent stories that attempt to explain Europe's, and later Britain's, modernization.
