In this book, authors set out how the transition to low
carbon futures needs to be understood as a dual response
to the wider financial and economic crisis and to
critical ecological concerns about the implications of
global climate change. The book develops a novel
framework for understanding how the transition to low
carbon is informed by historical legacies that shape the
geographical, political and cultural dimensions of low
carbon responses. Through a programme of research in
Scotland, Wales, the North East of England, Greater

the Global South. The author-s approach reveals the
striking contrast between the power of the historical
method and the sterility of conventional economic theory
based on trans-historical rationality.- The author
demonstrates that her father-s warnings of the dire
consequences of permitting the market to govern the
social and political life of peoples and nations has
gained new relevance and authority since the unresolved
financial crisis of 2008. She has made an important
contribution to the understanding of the role of emerging

This book argues that there is considerable coherence to
American finance : far from being a house of cards, it is
a proper edifice, built on institutional foundations with
points of both strength and weakness. The book examines
these foundations through a historical account of their
construction : it shows how institutional transformations
in the late nineteenth century created a distinctive
infrastructure of financial relations and proceeds to
trace the contradiction-ridden expansion of this system
during the twentieth century as well as its institutional
consolidation during the neoliberal era.

The spread of currency convertibility is one of the most
dramatic trends of the late twentieth century. It
reflects the desire of policymakers to integrate their
economies into the global trading system and to attract
financial capital and direct investment from abroad. In
this book a team of leading international economists and
economic historians look at parallel situations in the
history of the international monetary system, focusing in
particular on the gold standard. The concluding chapter
uses a case study of modern Portugal to draw out
implications for modern international monetary relations
in Europe and for the rest of the world.

This book seeks to enlighten two grey areas of industrial
historiography. Although Bengal industries were globally
dominant on the eve of the industrial revolution, no
detailed literature is available about their later course
of development. A series of questions are involved in it.
Whether those industries decline during the spells of
British industrial revolution did. If yes, what their
reasons were. If not, the general curiosity is: On which
merits those industries survive against the odds of the
technological revolution. A thorough discussion on these
issues also clears up another area of dispute relating to
the occurrence of deindustrialization in Bengal, and the
validity of two competing hypotheses on it, viz. i) the
mainstream hypothesis of market failures, and ii) the neo
Marxian hypothesis of imperialistic state interventions.

decentralization and political centralization, the urban-
rural divide, and relational society. These are explored
in depth via analyses of factors including urban and
rural economic development and their political and social
foundations, industrial agglomeration, transitions of
public services and governmental responsibilities towards
them and developmental imbalances and mechanisms. It is
illustrated that whilst contemporary China has obviously
made great economic strides, a wide variety of problems
are accumulating over time.

Palestine as a territorial entity has experienced a
curious history. Until World War I, Palestine was part of
the sprawling Ottoman Empire. After the war, Palestine
came under the administration of Great Britain by an
arrangement with the League of Nations. In 1948 Israel
established itself in part of Palestine-s territory, and
Egypt and Jordan assumed administration of the remainder.
By 1967 Israel took control of the sectors administered
by Egypt and Jordan and by 1988 Palestine reasserted
itself as a state. Recent years saw the international
community acknowledging Palestinian statehood as it
promotes the goal of two independent states, Israel and
Palestine, co-existing peacefully. This book provides a
detailed account of how Palestine has been recognized
until the present day.

Using insights about markets from the new institutional
economics, this book sheds light on the institutional
history of the emissions trading concept as it has
evolved across different contexts. Diplomats, policy
experts, academics, and the carbon trading industry
currently have a monopoly on knowledge about the
intricacies of developing and implementing emissions
trading systems (ETS) for environmental control. This
book seeks to weaken that monopoly. It makes accessible

a key tool for fighting climate change. Blas L. Prez

This book summarizes the recent empirical research
carried out on the issue of the classical period of trade
protectionism. It provides a basis for revising widely
held views on the standard effects of tariffs on economic
structures and progress, as well as a historical
perspective on recent developments after examining the
direct and long-run consequences of protectionist
measures on particular economies, utilizing evidence from
in-depth investigations of trade statistics as well as
best practice statistical techniques such as effective
protection, elasticity of demand and revealed comparative

This book is about the business of the film industry, and
examines this business within a historical context. Given
the extent to which Hollywood has dominated the industry,
almost from its inception, Hollywood will necessarily be
the focus of much of the analysis. Indeed, it has been
written not for the economist/economic historian per se,
but for the reader seeking a broader understanding of the
film industry, irrespective of his or her own discipline

This book puts the material back into clothing. In recent
years social scientists have become increasingly
interested in theories of fashion, but have rarely
directly addressed the material qualities of clothing. By
contrast, traditional studies of dress have focused on
textiles but often neglect the larger cultural context
within which dress becomes consumed as clothing. This
book fills a major gap by combining these two -camps-
through an expressly material culture approach to

This book provides the most comprehensive history of
German migration to North America for the period 1709 to
1920 than has been done before. The book is based on two
objectives which explores firstly, how the recruitment
and shipping markets for immigrants were set up,
determining what the voyage was like in terms of the
health outcomes for the passengers, and identifying the
characteristics of the immigrants in terms of family,
age, and occupational compositions and educational
attainments and secondly, how immigrant servitude worked,
by identifying how important it was to passenger
financing, how shippers profited from carrying immigrant
servants, how the labor auction treated immigrant
servants, and when and why this method of financing
passage to America came to an end.
