Considering Europe as a whole rather than as a mosaic of individual states, Francois Crouzet presents this history of the European economy during the second millennium. Stressing the common economic institutions shared over time by the different regions of Europe and the networks of relations that have linked them, Crouzet examines pan-European changes and integration rather than merely the particular experiences of individual countries. This work goes beyond addressing the historical ramifications of trade in the European economy to encompass problems such as the diffusion of technology, the migration of capital and labour, diasporas and minorities, and national diversity. By stressing the historical origins of the drive toward European integration and its progress all the way to the birth of the Euro, Crouzet delivers a comprehensive overview of European economic history.

Reviews

A History of the European Economy, 1000-2000 gives a very clear and well-documented overview of Europe's economic development from the moment it emerged as an integrating economic system in the late Middle Ages up to the present. Francois Crouzet's excellent blending of the results of new research with the traditional historiography brings a substantial contribution to the field. - Herman Van der Wee, Leuven University, Belgium
