アイルランドの長期的好景気-1986~2007年のケルトの虎の経済
O'Malley, Eoin, Ireland's Long Economic Boom: The Celtic Tiger Economy, 1986-2007. (Palgrave Studies in Economic History) 264 pp. 2024:4 (Palgrave Macmillan, UK) <722-192>

This Open Access book examines the long economic boom experienced in Ireland between the late 1980s and 2007, analysing why this boom occurred. The book situates Ireland as a relative latecomer to economic development, with specific challenges and advantages inherent to this position. It discusses the risks involved in remaining reliant on foreign companies, exploring how in Ireland's case the rapidly growing economy required active, interventionist and imaginative policy measures rather than relying primarily on free market forces. The book also offers an estimation of the value of the net foreign earnings associated with different categories of exports after deducting the profit outflows and payments for imported inputs, revealing a number of findings about the importance of Irish indigenous companies and services during this time. It shows that Irish indigenous companies, assisted by industrial policy measures, played a significant part, as did the services sector,alongside the more visible and widely recognised role of foreign multinationals in high-tech manufacturing. Offering fresh insights and analyses more than 15 years after the long boom ended at the precipice of the global financial crisis, this book will be a useful resource for economic historians, scholars of political economy and macroeconomic policy, as well as those interested in modern Irish history more broadly.

中国の労働市場 1950~2050年
Du, Jane, China's Labour Market, 1950-2050: The Role of Family Planning in Demographic and Income Transitions. (Palgrave Studies in Economic History) 163 pp. 2024:2 (Palgrave Macmillan, UK) <722-202>
ISBN 978-3-031-53137-8 hard ¥9,368.- (税込) EUR 39.99

This book presents an in-depth examination of China's population control policies from their establishment to the present and explores the developing implications of these policies on the Chinese labour market. The book connects original research on contemporary Chinese demographics with a historical analysis of China's labour market structure. Using data from the most recent population census, chapters explore the economic impact of the demographic transition that has taken place over recent decades, from the strict implementation of family planning policies to the current easing of these policies. The book examines income growth and economic development in China after the Second World War with comparative perspectives from other Asian countries including Japan and South Korea. It also devotes a chapter to regional variations in the effectiveness of population control policies, exploring differences in rural and urban areas, and surveys the future challenges for the Chinese government in addressing population and growth-related concerns. This book will be of interest to students and researchers in economic history, labour economics, and demography, as well as those interested in Chinese economic and societal development.

1580年から現在までのオランダ製紙産業
Ehrich, Martha Emilie, The Dutch Paper Industry from 1580 to the Present: The Survival of a Long-Established Industry. (Palgrave Studies in Economic History) 149 pp. 2024:3 (Palgrave Macmillan, UK) <722-290>
ISBN 978-3-031-54323-4 hard ¥11,711.- (税込) EUR 49.99

This open access book is the first to provide an analysis of the Dutch paper industry over a period encompassing six centuries. Responding to a trend of renewed scholarly interest in paper industries and production, the book seeks to illuminate the factors behind this relatively small national industry's centuries-long survival. Previous historical research has shown that sets of colonial, trade, merchant and family networks, tightly interwoven through a dense web of capital, were crucial for paper production and trade in early modern Europe. This book situates the Dutch paper industry within these overlapping contexts and their shifting dynamics over time, and historicizes the challenges and obstacles it had to overcome through four phases of capitalism: the rise of Dutch capitalism (1580-1815), Dutch monarchic liberalism (1815-1914), Fordism (1914-1980), and post-Fordism (1980 until now). Each chapter covers not only technological advancements in the industry, but its development alongside further determining dimensions, such as state-industry relations (industry policies), labour-capital relations (unions) and competition and cooperation, overall painting a picture of how the industry adapted to and endured changes in national and global networks surrounding the industry. This book will be of broad interest to scholars of economic and business history, as well as industrial history, political economy, and management studies.

南アフリカにおける金、金融、帝国主義 1887~1902年-株式取引からの視点
Lukasiewicz, Mariusz, Gold, Finance and Imperialism in South Africa, 1887-1902: A View from the Stock Exchange. (Cambridge Imperial and Post-Colonial Studies) 242 pp. 2024:3 (Palgrave Macmillan, UK) <722-292>
ISBN 978-3-031-51946-8 hard ¥28,112.- (税込) EUR 119.99

This book provides a unique account of the financial and political history of the South African War by analysing the organisation and operations of the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE), the oldest existing stock exchange in the African continent. Identifying the JSE as the nexus between international finance, South African gold mining and British imperialism, the book exposes the financial and political connections between Johannesburg, Pretoria, London, and Paris during the final stage of the imperial 'scramble for southern Africa.' Gold mining presented the South African Republic (ZAR) and the whole southern African regional economy with a long-term economic future and new prospects of industrialisation. However, this socio-economic transformation was dependent on extensive capital investments and the institutionalisation of a coercive labour regime based on racial discrimination. This monograph provides the first empirical examination of how international finance, imperial politics, and racialised industrial relations became entrenched in a key financial intermediary in colonial South Africa - first in Kimberley in the Cape Colony, and then in Johannesburg in the ZAR. By studying the Johannesburg capital market's social microstructures, the author demonstrates how colonial and international financial intermediaries underwrote and financed the largest wave of mining investments in Africa prior to the First World War. Filling an important gap in literature on nineteenth-century British imperialism and Anglo-African-Afrikaner relations, this insightful book uses the JSE as a lens to carefully expose the structures and agency of global finance in the outbreak of the South African War, and the making of South Africa as a unified colonial state.

T.ロイ他著 1956年から現在までのケーララ
Roy, Tirthankar / Raman, K. Ravi, Kerala, 1956 to the Present: India's Miracle State. (Economic Histories of Indian States) 180 pp. 2024:8 (Cambridge U. Pr., UK) <722-294>
ISBN 978-1-00-952163-5 hard ¥19,481.- (税込) GB£ 70.00

Kerala is different, but not in the way we think.' Economic change in this southern state has fascinated economists. Most studies focused on the state's unusual human development, asked how a poor and economically stagnant state could achieve high levels of education and healthcare and pointed to politics and government policy to answer the question. Little of that scholarship took history seriously. History, this book says, shows that the foundations of human development were laid before the formation of the state and were owed to many factors besides politics. The striking thing about the state is its unusual income growth, which has been faster than most states since the 1990s. The question the authors ask is, 'How could an income-poor state break out of stagnation so dramatically?' The answers consider past globalisation, labour mobility, a legacy of welfare spending, and the positive ways these features interacted since India's economic reforms.

東インド会社の富への対立する主張 1600~50年
Schleck, Julia, Conflicting Claims to East India Company Wealth, 1600-1650: Reading Debates over Risk and Reward. (Entanglements, Interactions, and Economies in the Early Modern World) 236 pp. 2024:2 (Amsterdam U. Pr., NE) <722-295>
ISBN 978-94-6372-719-8 hard ¥31,447.- (税込) GB£ 113.00

Centered on moral critiques of wealth and the unequal distribution of risks and rewards in the lengthy voyages required by the East Indies trade, this book examines the debates surrounding England's earliest global trading ventures. Arguments over the staggering loss of lives and national resources and struggles over control of the new trade in luxuries reveal the forging of rationales justifying the new capitalist inequalities. Yet Company servants traveling abroad to conduct the risky trade resisted this newly coalescing social formation through strategic disobedience to their masters' will, controlling information and promoting ignorance when it served their financial and sexual purposes. Conflicting Claims to East India Company Wealth, 1600-1650 interrogates the forces that shaped England's earliest forays into capitalist imperialism by tracing the battles over corporate control of men's finances, marriages, and bare survival at the dawn of its global trade.

スウェーデンの君主制と銅貿易 1600~40年
Stryker, Lawrence, The Swedish Monarchy and the Copper Trade: The Copper Company, the Deposit System, and the Amsterdam Market, 1600-1640. (Entanglements, Interactions, and Economies in the Early Modern World) 302 pp. 2024:5 (Amsterdam U. Pr., NE) <722-296>
ISBN 978-90-485-6081-3 hard ¥32,561.- (税込) GB£ 117.00

In 1611, the seventeen-year-old Gustav Adolf ascended the throne of Sweden. Before the new king could sit on his throne, however, he faced a disastrous war against Denmark, another conflict in Russia, and a rebellious nobility at home. Plus, Sweden itself had an arctic climate and a short growing season. Clearly Gustav II Adolf faced great difficulties even to survive. Yet by the end of the next decade, Gustav II Adolf's Sweden was a leading military power in continental Europe. In 1630 the king invaded the Holy Roman Empire and joined the Thirty Years War to defend the Protestant cause. How was this possible? Sweden had one major asset, the Stora Kopparberg, the largest copper mine in Europe. The king exploited the mine and used the revenue to finance his political and military ambitions. This is the story of Gustav II Adolf's efforts to improve efficiencies at the mine and control the marketing of its bounty.

Die spanische Monarchie und die Hansestaedte waren gleich in mehrfacher Hinsicht ≫ungleiche Partner≪. Trotz kultureller Unterschiede und Gegensaetze kam es zwischen der katholischen Weltmacht Spanien und den mehrheitlich protestantischen Hansestaedten seit dem letzten Drittel des 16. Jahrhunderts zu einer wirtschaftlichen und politischen Annaeherung, von der beide Seiten profitierten. Diesen von der Forschung lange vernachlaessigten Vorgang zeichnet die Studie erstmals auf breiter Quellengrundlage nach und eroeffnet damit zugleich einen neuen Blick auf die Geschichte fruehneuzeitlicher Aussenbeziehungen. Neben Gesandten und politischen Funktionstraegern treten Akteure in den Vordergrund, die sich unterhalb der Ebene der Hoefe und der ≫offiziellen≪ Diplomatie bewegten und als kulturelle Mittler fungierten.

鎮目雅人他編 世界中の貨幣博士-歴史的視点
Alvarez, Andres / Bignon, V. / Oegren, A. / Shizume, Masato (eds.), Money Doctors Around the Globe: A Historical Perspective. (Studies in Economic History) 398 pp. 2024:5 (Springer, GW) <722-298>
ISBN 978-981-9701-33-9 hard ¥42,170.- (税込) EUR 179.99

This book focuses on worldwide historical experiences of monetary reforms and the reformist minds behind them: the money doctors. The process of doctoring is the process of listening to many pieces of information and sorting them in order to correctly diagnose the causes of the problem and derive the appropriate cure, if it exists. A money doctor is "a person who, helped by theoretical and practical knowledge, advises and/or proposes to act on how to build a stable monetary and financial system or to repair ongoing monetary turbulences." Economists and policy makers are money doctors when their involvement includes the observation and diagnostic of the monetary and financial troubles and the proposition for a cure. Each contribution highlights the theoretical underpinning of the doctors, and the key factors for the success or failures of the reform they have promoted. We collect cases from Americas, Asia, Europe, and Oceania from the 16th to the 20th century anddiscuss their aims, strategies, and consequences to draw implications for today.

インフレの復活-歴史と政策提言からの教訓
Heine, Michael / Herr, Hansjoerg, The Resurgence of Inflation: Lessons from History and Policy Recommendations. (Financial and Monetary Policy Studies 57) 188 pp. 2024:2 (Springer, GW) <722-165>
ISBN 978-3-031-52739-5 hard ¥18,740.- (税込) EUR 79.99

In light of the resurgence of inflation in developed industrialised countries following a period of inordinately low inflation, this book analyses the causes and devastating effects of inflation by drawing lessons from the past. Focusing on the German hyperinflation of the 1920s and the inflationary waves of the 1970s, it examines the resulting economic crises and their influence on the subsequent periods of social and political turmoil, namely the fascism of the 1930s and the neoliberal revolution of the 1980s. Featuring five detailed case studies on inflationary waves in various countries in the 1970s, the book identifies economic policy errors of the past, seeking to prevent their recurrence. Offering empirical and theoretical insights alike, the authors present strategies for effectively combating inflation and deflation. In turn, the book assesses the complex ties between wage increases, income distribution, and price changes, ultimately providing valuable recommendations on how wage policy can be used to stabilise price level increases at a low level in a world characterised by diverse and extreme economic shocks."The Resurgence of Inflation" fosters a vital discourse on wage and price dynamics, economic development and the role of trade unions, making it an essential read for policymakers, economists, and anyone seeking a deeper understanding of today's economic challenges.

資本主義の変容の歴史-リベラルな資本主義改革批判
Conte, Giampaolo, A History of Capitalist Transformation: A Critique of Liberal-Capitalist Reforms. (Routledge Frontiers of Political Economy) 144 pp. 2024:7 (Routledge, UK) <721-216>
ISBN 978-1-03-257963-4 hard ¥36,179.- (税込) GB£ 130.00

A History of Capitalist Transformation: A Critique of Liberal-Capitalist Reforms highlights how, since the recent financial crises, the expression 'liberal reform' has entered common parlance as an evocative image of austerity and economic malaise, especially for the working classes and a segment of the middle class. But what exactly does 'liberal reform' refer to? The research analyses the historical origins of liberal-capitalist reformism using a critical approach, starting with the origins of the Industrial Revolution.The book demonstrates that the chief purpose of such reforms was to integrate semi-peripheral states into the capitalist world-economy by imposing, both directly and indirectly, the adoption of rules, institutions, attitudes, and procedures amenable to economic and political interests of capitalist elites and hegemonic states - Britain first, the United States later - between the nineteenth and twenty-first centuries. As such, the reforms became an active tool used to promote social-economical-financial institutions, norms, and lifestyles typical of a liberal-capitalist economic order, which locates some of its founding values in capital accumulation, profit-seeking, and social transformation.This book will be of significant interest to readers on capitalism, political economy, the history of the global economy and British history.

地中海における自由貿易と自由港
Delogu, Giulia / Stapelbroek, Koen / Trampus, A. (eds.), Free Trade and Free Ports in the Mediterranean. (Political Economies of Capitalism, 1600-1850) 360 pp. 2024:7 (Routledge, UK) <721-217>
ISBN 978-1-03-206928-9 hard ¥36,179.- (税込) GB£ 130.00

How did free trade emerge in early modern times? How did the Mediterranean as a specific region - with its own historical characteristics - produce a culture in which the free port appeared? What was the relation between the type of free trade created in early modern Italy and the development of global trade and commercial competition between states for hegemony in the eighteenth century? And how did the position of the free port, originally a Mediterranean 'invention', develop over the course of time? The contributions to this volume address these questions and explain the institutional genealogy of the free port.Free Trade and Free Ports in the Mediterranean analyses the atypical history and conditions of the Mediterranean region in contradistinction with other regions as an explanation for how and why free ports arose there. This volume engages with the diffusion of free ports from a Mediterranean to a global phenomenon, whilst staying focused on how this diffusion was experienced in the Mediterranean itself. The contributions to this volume bring together the traditional issues of religious openness and tolerance in physically separated areas and the role of consuls and governors, via fiscal techniques, architectural and administrative aspects, with questions about geopolitical balance and primacy.The book will be of interest to scholars in a wide range of historical sub-disciplines (early modern, Mediterranean, global economic, political, institutional, just to mention a few) and to students wishing to perfect their knowledge of the Mediterranean and its global interconnections, and of the origins of free trade.

Otero-Cleves, Ana Maria, Plebeian Consumers: Global Connections, Local Trade, and Foreign Goods in Nineteenth-Century Colombia. (Cambridge Latin American Studies) 261 pp. 2024:8 (Cambridge U. Pr., UK) <721-219>
ISBN 978-1-00-943559-8 hard ¥23,655.- (税込) GB£ 85.00

Plebeian Consumers is both a global and local study. It tells the story of how peasants, day workers, formerly enslaved people, and small landholders became the largest consumers of foreign commodities in nineteenth-century Colombia, and dynamic participants of an increasingly interconnected world. By studying how plebeian consumers altered global processes from below, Ana Maria Otero-Cleves challenges ongoing stereotypes about Latin America's peripheral role in the world economy through the nineteenth century, and its undisputed dependency on the Global North. By exploring Colombians' everyday practices of consumption, Otero-Cleves also invites historians to pay close attention to the intimate relationship between the political world and the economic world in nineteenth-century Latin America. She also sheds light on new methodologies and approaches for studying the material world of men and women who left little record of their own experiences.

ローマの商人の評判
Sancinito, Jane, The Reputation of the Roman Merchant. (Law and Society in the Ancient World) 272 pp. 2024:1 (U. Michigan Pr., US) <721-220>
ISBN 978-0-472-13348-2 hard ¥16,170.- (税込) US$ 75.00

Roman merchants, artisans, and service providers faced substantial prejudice. Contemporary authors labeled them greedy, while the man on the street accused merchants of lying and cheating. Legally and socially, merchants were kept at arm's length from respectable society. Yet merchants were common figures in daily life, populating densely packed cities and traveling around the Mediterranean. The Reputation of the Roman Merchant focuses on the strategies retailers, craftsmen, and many other workers used to succeed, examining how they developed good reputations despite the stigma associated with their work. In a novel approach, blending social and economic history, The Reputation of the Roman Merchant considers how reputation worked as an informal institution, establishing and reinforcing traditional Roman norms while lowering the cost of doing business for individual workers. From histories and novels to inscriptions and art, this volume identifies common reputation strategies, explores how points of pride and personal accomplishments were shared with others, and explains responses to merchant activities on the small-scale. The book concludes that merchants invested heavily in their reputations as a way to set themselves apart from common, negative stereotypes without admitting that there was anything shameful about the work they did.

1970年代のグローバルな経済ショックと冷戦の終焉
De Groot, Michael, Disruption: The Global Economic Shocks of the 1970s and the End of the Cold War. 324 pp. 2024:3 (Cornell U. Pr., US) <720-246>
ISBN 978-1-5017-7411-9 hard ¥11,631.- (税込) US$ 53.95 *

In Disruption, Michael De Groot argues that the global economic upheaval of the 1970s was decisive in ending the Cold War. Both the West and the Soviet bloc struggled with the slowdown of economic growth; chaos in the international monetary system; inflation; shocks in the commodities markets; and the emergence of offshore financial markets. The superpowers had previously disseminated resources to their allies to enhance their own national security, but the disappearance of postwar conditions during the 1970s forced Washington and Moscow to choose between promoting their own economic interests and supporting their partners in Europe and Asia. De Groot shows that new unexpected macroeconomic imbalances in global capitalism sustained the West during the following decade. Rather than a creditor nation and net exporter, as it had been during the postwar period, the United States became a net importer of capital and goods during the 1980s that helped fund public spending, stimulated economic activity, and lubricated the private sector. The United States could now live beyond its means and continue waging the Cold War, and its allies benefited from access to the booming US market and the strengthened US military umbrella. As Disruption demonstrates, a new symbiotic economic architecture powered the West, but the Eastern European regimes increasingly became a burden to the Soviet Union. They were drowning in debt, and the Kremlin no longer had the resources to rescue them.

ビザンツ-経済、社会、制度 600~1100年
Howard-Johnston, James, Byzantium: Economy, Society, Institutions 600-1100. 336 pp. 2024:8 (Oxford U. Pr., UK) <720-247>
ISBN 978-0-19-889788-0 hard ¥25,047.- (税込) GB£ 90.00

Byzantium was a strange entity--a relic of classical antiquity which survived deep into the Middle Ages. Drawing on a lifetime's work in the field of Byzantine studies, James Howard-Johnston aims to explain Byzantium's longevity, first as a state geared to fighting a two-centuries long guerrilla war of defence, then as an increasingly confident regional power. It is only by analysing its economic, social, and institutional structures that this strange medieval afterlife of the rump of the Roman empire can be understood. This collection of linked essays outlines the fundamental features of Byzantium, with a focus on the seventh to eleventh centuries. The essays delve below the agitated surface of political, religious, and intellectual history to home in on (1) alterations in economic conditions; and (2) structural change in the social order and apparatus of government. The economic foundations of society and state are examined over the long term, with emphasis placed on mercantile enterprise throughout. Howard-Johnston identifies warfare as the prime driver of social and institutional change in a first phase (seventh to eighth centuries), when the peasant villager rose to a dominant position in the collective mindset and the administration was centralised and militarised as never before. A second phase of change is then highlighted, after the mid-ninth century when Byzantium's security was assured. Military and administrative arrangements were adapted as the empire expanded. The service aristocracy which had developed in the dark centuries began to assert itself to the detriment of the peasantry, but was, Howard-Johnston argues, countered reasonably effectively by new legislation. There was a renaissance in cultural life, most marked in the intellectual sphere in the eleventh century. Finally, the sharp decline in Byzantium's military fortunes from the mid-eleventh century is attributed to external factors rather than internal weakness.

Merlo, Elisabetta / Paris, Ivan, The Italian Fashion System: The Role of Institutions and Institutional Change, 1940s-1980s. (Palgrave Studies in Economic History) 153 pp. 2024:2 (Palgrave Macmillan, UK) <720-248>
ISBN 978-3-031-52374-8 hard ¥9,368.- (税込) EUR 39.99

Fashion is a research topic of increasing interest to economic and business historians as it points towards new understandings of economic growth and decline. This book explores the role of institutions and institutional change in the Italian fashion system from the 1940s to the 1980s. Starting from the premise that institutions play a central role in explaining the peculiarity and development of the Italian fashion system, this book analyses the diverse institutional entities involved in supporting and promoting Italian fashion. The objective is twofold: to highlight, with a comparative approach, the distinctly polycentric nature of Italian fashion and to explain the emergence of the stylist as the outcome of a lengthy process of institutional change. The book explores the role that institutions and institutional actors have played in making Italian fashion a key player into the world economy, enriching the existing interpretative framework through unique interdisciplinary analysis. This book will be of interest to researchers and students working in economic and business history, the history of fashion, and cultural studies.

中欧における出版社 1800~70年
Brophy, James M., Print Markets and Political Dissent in Central Europe: Publishers in Central Europe, 1800-1870. (Oxford Studies in Modern European History) 496 pp. 2024:6 (Oxford U. Pr., UK) <720-3>
ISBN 978-0-19-884572-0 hard ¥28,664.- (税込) GB£ 103.00

Moving book history in a new direction, this study examines publishers as brokers of Central Europe's political public sphere. They created international print markets, translated new texts, launched new journals, supported outspoken authors, and experimented with popular formats. Most of all, they contested censorship with finesse and resolve, thereby undermining the aim of Prussia and Austria to criminalize democratic thought. By packaging dissent through popular media, publishers cultivated broad readerships, promoted political literacy, and refashioned citizenship ideals. As political actors, intellectual midwives, and cultural mediators, publishers speak to a broad range of scholarly interests. Their outsize personalities, their entrepreneurial zeal, and their publishing achievements portray how print markets shaped the political world. The narrow perimeters of political communication in the late-absolutist states of Prussia and Austria curtailed the open market of ideas. The publishing industry contested this information order, working both within and outside legal parameters to create a modern public sphere. Their expansion of print markets, their cat-and-mouse game with censors, and their ingenuity in packaging political commentary sheds light on the production and reception of dissent. Against the backdrop of censorship and police surveillance, the successes and failures of these citizens of print tell us much about nineteenth-century civil society and Central Europe's tortuous pathway to political modernization. Cutting across a range of disciplines, this study will engage social and political historians as well as scholars of publishing, literary criticism, cultural studies, translation, and the public sphere. The history of Central Europe's print markets between Napoleon and the era of unification doubles as a political tale. It sheds important new light on political communication and how publishers exposed German-language readers to the Age of Democratic Revolution.

中東経済史における再建-R.オーウェン記念論集
Babai, Don (ed.), Reconstructions in Middle East Economic History: Essays in Honor of Roger Owen. (Routledge Studies in Middle Eastern History) 272 pp. 2024:7 (Routledge, UK) <719-310>
ISBN 978-1-03-254389-5 hard ¥36,179.- (税込) GB£ 130.00

This volume explores major theoretical and empirical themes in the study of the economic history of the Middle East.Despite the relative neglect of economic history in Middle Eastern studies, this book makes a case for its importance as a discipline of study. On the one hand, it shows promise in illuminating the economic base of historical trends and events; on the other, it can elucidate the historical foundations of economic continuity and change. The chapters employ an array of theoretical and methodological approaches and ultimately demonstrate how economics and history, along with political economy, complement each other in studying the Middle East. Among the substantive topics explored are the trajectories of the Arab Spring, institutional change and economic development in the early Ottoman Empire, the destructive effects of the reordering property rights in Iraq by the American-led occupation authority, the evolution of the political economy of the Islamic Republic of Iran, and the determinants of movements in the yields of Egyptian and Ottoman sovereign debt following political and economic crises in the 19th and early 20th centuries.The book will be of interest to scholars and students of economic history, political economy, and the Middle East.

欧州競争政策の展開
Shaev, Brian / Ramirez Perez, Sigfrido (eds.), The Development of European Competition Policy: Social Democracy and Regulation. (Routledge Explorations in Economic History) 368 pp. 2024:6 (Routledge, UK) <719-220>
ISBN 978-1-138-54159-7 hard ¥36,179.- (税込) GB£ 130.00

This book considers a central issue of our time: the relationship between the macroeconomic objectives of political parties in democratic countries and the legal framework of market economies. The impressive panel of contributors examine social democratic policies on cartels, market concentration, and competition in multiple European countries, spanning a hundred-year period (specifically the interwar period, the initial postwar period, the 1960s and 1970s, the 1980s and 1990s, and the 2000s). This thought-provoking volume challenges the dominant belief that the EU's economic system and competition policy were mainly influenced by neoliberal economic thinking, instead showing that Keynesian and social democratic positions played a major role in the emergence of this system.It will be valuable reading for advanced students, researchers and policymakers interested in modern economic history, industrial organization, political economy, European legal history and political science.

Buzassyova, Barbora, The Eastern Bloc and Sub-Saharan Africa: Czechoslovakia, UNESCO and Development Aid from the 1960s and Beyond. (Routledge Histories of Central and Eastern Europe) 264 pp. 2024:6 (Routledge, UK) <719-221>
ISBN 978-1-03-257546-9 hard ¥36,179.- (税込) GB£ 130.00

This book analyses the shifting patterns of Czechoslovak educational aid programmes for sub-Saharan African countries within the broader framework of the global debates on the nature of development aid in education discussed on the UNESCO grounds during the three "development decades."Starting in the early 1960s, Czechoslovakia sent abroad hundreds of experts hoping to stimulate the development of local educational and scientific institutions. However, over the years the development aid to African countries transformed into a special form of foreign trade, and distribution of experts turned into a profitable business. Yet, the tendencies towards "sustainability" and "higher return on investment" in the field of development aid were not limited just to the socialist bloc but emerged globally. This book, therefore, not only revisits the roles of Czechoslovakia and Africa in the Cold War history but also reflects on the function of aid in international politics.The Eastern Bloc and Sub-Saharan Africa will appeal to students and historians specializing in the global Cold War, and particularly those curious about development, international organizations, economic history and transfers of knowledge in transnational networks.

レーニンからプーチンまでのエネルギー、貿易、ロシアの外交関係
Perovic, Jeronim, Fuel and Power: Energy, Trade, and Russian Foreign Relations from Lenin to Putin. 274 pp. 2024:6 (Cambridge U. Pr., UK) <718-245>
ISBN 978-1-00-944910-6 hard ¥22,264.- (税込) GB£ 80.00
ISBN 978-1-00-944914-4 paper ¥7,232.- (税込) GB£ 25.99

This is a very timely study of Russia's development into a global energy power from the Russian Revolution to the present day. Beginning in the late nineteenth century, Russia emerged not only as a key producer but also as one of the world's leading exporters of oil. Russia's transformation into a modern global power was connected to its ability to make use of its vast natural resources and produce energy in increasing quantities. While the development of Russia's energy industry went hand in hand with a profound socio-political and economic transformation, the book also tells the story of international cooperation and competition, transnational exchanges and transborder interdependencies. Through energy exports, Russia shaped global energy flows and connections; at the same time, the growth of international trade impacted the views and decisions of Russian leaders, affecting the fabric of the country's foreign relations and, ultimately, the course of Russian history.

Bates, Jennifer, The Origins of Agriculture in the Bronze Age Indus Civilization. 398 pp. 2024:8 (Cambridge U. Pr., UK) <717-255>
ISBN 978-1-00-942444-8 hard ¥27,830.- (税込) GB£ 100.00

The Indus civilization in South Asia (c. 320 - 1500BC) was one of the most important Old World Bronze Age cultures. Located at the cross-roads of Asia, in modern Pakistan and India, it encompassed ca. one million square kilometers, making it one the largest and most ecologically, culturally, socially, and economically complex among contemporary civilisations. In this study, Jennifer Bates offers new insights into the Indus civilisation through an archaeobotanical reconstruction of its environment. Exploring the relationship between people and plants, agricultural systems, and the foods that people consumed, she demonstrates how the choices made by the ancient inhabitants were intertwined with several aspects of society, as were their responses to social and climate changes. Bates' book synthesizes the available data on genetics, archaeobotany, and archaeology. It shows how the ancient Indus serves as a case study of a civilization navigating sustainability, resilience and collapse in the face of changing circumstances by adapting its agricultural practices.

ブリストル・インド西部砂糖交易における危機と弾力性 1783~1802年
Buckles, Peter, Crisis and Resilience in the Bristol-West India Sugar Trade, 1783-1802. (Eighteenth Century Worlds 13) 232 pp. 2024:1 (Liverpool U. Pr., UK) <717-326>
ISBN 978-1-80207-883-1 hard ¥26,438.- (税込) GB£ 95.00

How did merchants deal with crises? From warfare to financial upheaval, from political machinations to the abolition of the slave trade, merchants and their networks in the eighteenth century faced a range of challenges. But they also demonstrated remarkable resilience. Providing new levels of detail on Britain's sugar trade, this authoritative account explores how Bristol's sugar merchants embodied cogs in the plantation machine, using their position of influence in Britain to maintain the production of sugar and violent systems of enslavement. It demonstrates how, as shipowners, these merchants protected their shipping, led the organisation of convoys, and took advantage of cheapening insurance. It reveals the inner workings of the sugar market and the strategies merchants used to remain profitable, showing how merchants navigated the transitions between peace and war. Finally, it uncovers their methods for managing credit and safeguarding their investments. Throughout, the nature of commerce in the eighteenth century is analysed in detail, from business networks to bills of exchange. Demonstrating meticulous, interdisciplinary research and thorough analysis of merchant business records, this book speaks broadly to the nature and experience of crisis in the eighteenth century and what this meant for the burgeoning systems of capitalism.

大戦間期の対外投資の政治経済-ポーランドにおける経済的ナショナリズムとフランスの資本 1918~39年-
Lazor, Jerzy, The Political Economy of Interwar Foreign Investment: Economic Nationalism and French Capital in Poland, 1918-1939. (Routledge Explorations in Economic History) 232 pp. 2024:4 (Routledge, UK) <717-327>
ISBN 978-1-03-245141-1 hard ¥36,179.- (税込) GB£ 130.00

France was interwar Poland's main ally, and the biggest source of the country's foreign investment. The two roles were closely connected: Paris used its position in Warsaw to win preferential treatment for its firms, while Polish authorities depended on France to finance their modernization policies and military spending. The relationship's asymmetric character bred conflict, and in the 1930s dissenting voices compared French actions in Poland to imperialism and colonial expansion. The book untangles the complex mix of economics, policy, and politics in Franco-Polish relations. Based on government and company-level sources, it evaluates the part played by French capital in Poland and discovers the mechanisms ruling French FDI and public loans. Exploring case studies of specific sectors and themes, it asks questions about the modernizing potential of FDI, interwar economic imperialism, the workings of asymmetric investment, and the interactions between investments and politics. Understanding the unequal footing of Warsaw and Paris, it goes beyond imperialistic interpretations, and examines the leeway available to the weaker partner of the relationship. The book contributes to economic history of Central and Eastern Europe, and, more generally, to our understanding of the position of peripheral countries in the interwar global system.

Moreno Zacares, Javier, Residential Capitalism: Rent Extraction and Capitalist Production in Modern Spain (1833-2023). (RIPE Series in Global Political Economy) 256 pp. 2024:4 (Routledge, UK) <717-328>
ISBN 978-1-03-207925-7 hard ¥36,179.- (税込) GB£ 130.00

Over the last decade, Spain has become an emblem of the contradictory relationship between capitalism and housing. During the house-price boom of the 2000s, Spain built homes on an unprecedented scale, with output levels that overshadowed those of every major European economy. Nevertheless, when the fortunes of real estate markets turned, a wave of repossessions ensued, and a massive number of households were thrown out into the street as a sizeable portion of the housing stock lied vacant. In turn, the implosion of Spanish residential capitalism triggered an intense wave of unrest that has come to shape a decade of political turmoil.This book uses the Spanish case to bring to light, and theorise, the workings of residential capitalism. The author traces the evolution of residential provision from the nineteenth century to the present, situating the transformation of the housing market in a context of ongoing social change and conflict. The book shows how the present needs to be understood by looking at the historical process through which residential provision became subsumed under the logic of capitalist accumulation, but also at a long genealogy of struggles around urbanisation and housing, the outcomes of which remain crystallised in Spain's urban institutions. The author reveals how both residential capitalist development and urban social conflict have constituted one another, casting light on the historical relationship between housing crises, urban unrest, and the evolution of real estate markets. The book develops a historicist framework to understand residential capitalism, an important contribution for an age in which real estate markets have come to determine the rhythms of global capital.Addressing key issues and debates in the field, including the financialisation of housing, the politics of scale and urban entrepreneurialism, the political economy of the Eurozone, and the history of capitalist development, this book will be of great interest to students and scholars of political economy, as well as those engaged in crossover fields such as housing studies, urban geography, or financial geography.

Its essays discuss this critical, but much neglected period of print history through case studies from Spain, Italy, France, the Holy Roman Empire, Britain and the Netherlands. Ranging from the posthumous publication of Galileo to the regulation of the book auction market, this volume demonstrates that the century between 1650 and 1750 was a transformative period for the history of the printed book.

Fair, Ross, Improving Upper Canada: Agricultural Societies and State Formation, 1791-1852. 400 pp. 2024:3 (U. Toronto Pr., CN) <716-377>
ISBN 978-1-4875-5353-1 hard ¥17,248.- (税込) US$ 80.00

Agricultural societies founded in the colony of Upper Canada were the institutional embodiment of the ideology of improvement, modelled on contemporary societies in Britain and the United States. In Improving Upper Canada, Ross Fair explores how the agricultural improvers who established and led these organizations were important agents of state formation. The book explores the initial failed attempts to create a single agricultural society for Upper Canada. It examines the 1830 legislation that publicly funded the creation of agricultural societies across the colony to be semi-public agents of agricultural improvement, and analyses societies established in the Niagara, Home, and Midland Districts to understand how each attempted to introduce specific improvements to local farming practices. The book reveals how Upper Canada's agricultural improvers formed a provincial association in the 1840s to ensure that the colonial government assumed a greater leadership role in agricultural improvement, resulting in the Bureau of Agriculture, forerunner of federal and provincial departments of agriculture in the post-Confederation era. In analysing an early example of state formation, Improving Upper Canada provides a comprehensive history of the foundations of today's Ontario's agricultural societies, which continue to promote agricultural improvement across the province.

ISBN 978-1-00-927689-4 hard ¥23,655.- (税込) GB£ 85.00

Capital in Banking traces the role of capital in US, British, and Swiss banking from the 19th to the 21st century. The book discusses the impact of perceptions and conventions on capital ratios in the 19th century, the effects of the First and Second World Wars, and the interaction of crises and banking regulation during the 1930s and the 1970s. Moreover, it emphasises the origins of the risk-weighted assets approach for measuring capital adequacy and explains how the 2007/2008 crisis led to a renaissance of unweighted capital ratios. The book shows that undisclosed reserves, shareholders' liability, and hybrid forms of capital must be considered when assessing capital adequacy. As the first long-run historical assessment of the topic, this book represents a reference point for publications in economics, finance, financial regulation, and financial history. This title is also available as Open Access on Cambridge Core.

In the 13th century, the monarchs of the Premyslid dynasty, whose territory overlapped with that of the present-day Czech Republic, were increasingly affected by the dismal state of the Crown's finances. As a result, the Premyslids initiated intensive silver exploitation, among other means to ensure income. This book's objective, based on interdisciplinary research, is therefore to describe and present the structure of mining and metallurgical areas in the kingdom of Bohemia, as well as to examine and identify how ore mining and metallurgy shaped and interacted with settlement organization and the medieval landscape.

ISBN 978-3-031-44167-7 hard ¥37,484.- (税込) EUR 159.99

This edited collection addresses concepts of value and its impact on economies and economic decision-making in Mesoamerica. It brings together various theoretical and methodological approaches to illuminate the little-studied topic of value in ancient economies.While scholars increasingly note that tangible objects found in the archaeological record could assume different values, depending on how they were used and circulated, less attention has been paid to how we might infer consensus (or lack of consensus) on how value was determined in past cultures so different from contemporary ones. These contributions show how multiple and conflicting understandings of what is important and meaningful coexist within any society even as moments of exchange create the impression of shared formulations of value. They consider divergences between shared understandings based on systems of beliefs and patterns of practice and the individual decisions of social actors. They also discuss how inequalities in social structures might inform our understanding of value, and how a multiplicity of values might encourage closer inspection of inequality in turn.The book brings together fifteen chapters focused on many parts of Mesoamerica, including Western Mexico, the Basin of Mexico, Veracruz, Oaxaca, and various parts of the Maya Lowlands, and range chronologically from the Classic period (250-900 CE) to the Spanish Conquest in the early 16th Century. It appeals to those working in archaeology, economic anthropology, economic history, and all those interested in how value can be understood in terms of contemporary cultural and political differences.

Wie bestritten Handwerkerfamilien ihren wirtschaftlichen Alltag? Der Schluessel zum Verstaendnis liegt in ihrer beruflichen und raeumlichen Mobilitaet Unser Verstaendnis von Arbeit ist einem starken Wandel unterworfen. Zunehmend werden mit Job Sharing, Homeoffice und Teilzeitarbeit flexiblere Arbeitsmodelle gefordert und erprobt. Zugleich nimmt weltweit die Zahl der sogenannten working poor zu - Personen, die mit nur einer Erwerbsarbeit nicht genug verdienen, um ihren Lebensunterhalt zu bestreiten. Die vormoderne Arbeitswelt war der unseren in mancher Hinsicht aehnlich. Oft gingen Ehepartnerinnen und -partner verschiedenen Erwerbsarbeiten nach, waren in mehreren Berufen taetig. Frauen und Maenner, Toechter und Soehne trugen zum Familieneinkommen bei. Frauen waren Meisterinnen, Lohnarbeiterinnen, Unternehmerinnen. Nicht nur beruflich, auch raeumlich waren Handwerkerinnen und Handwerker ueberaus mobil. Der mikrohistorische Fokus auf eine offene Familienwirtschaft ermoeglicht es, diese flexiblen handwerklichen Oekonomien zu erfassen. Der Beitrag von Nicole Stadelmanns Buch zur deutschsprachigen Handwerksforschung liegt in der Zusammenfuehrung der zuenftigen und ausserzuenftigen Produktion. Indem dabei die Arbeit der Frauen in der Produktionssphaere sichtbar wird, leistet die Studie auch wichtige Erkenntnisse zur Frauen- und Geschlechtergeschichte.

In Seeding Empire, Aaron Eddens rewrites an enduring story about the past-and future-of global agriculture. Eddens connects today's efforts to cultivate a "Green Revolution in Africa" to a history of American projects that introduced capitalist agriculture across the Global South. Expansive in scope, this book draws on archival records of the earliest Green Revolution projects in Mexico in the 1940s and 1950s, as well as interviews at development institutions and agribusinesses working to deliver genetically modified crops to millions of small-scale farmers across Africa. From the offices of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to the halls of the world's largest agricultural biotechnology companies to field trials of hybrid maize in Kenya, Eddens shows how the Green Revolution fails to address global inequalities. Seeding Empire insists that eradicating hunger in a world of climate crisis demands thinking beyond the Green Revolution.

ISBN 978-1-324-05146-6 hard ¥7,007.- (税込) US$ 32.50

No animal is so entangled in human history as the horse. The thread starts in prehistory, with a small, shy animal, hunted for food. Over time, the domestication of horses, followed by the advent of riding, powered mighty empires: Persian, Mongol, Mughal. For more than two millennia, from Iran and Afghanistan to China, India, and, later, Russia, the deep and ancient bond between humans and their horses connected a vast continent, forged trade routes, linked cultures, and fueled war machines. Scholar of Asian history David Chaffetz tells the story of the steppe raiders, rulers, and traders who amassed power and wealth on horseback from the Bronze Age through the twentieth century. Drawing on a wealth of primary sources-in Persian, Turkish, Russian, and Chinese-Chaffetz presents a groundbreaking new view of what has been known as the "Silk Road," and a lively history of the great horse empires that shaped civilization.

Unter ?Investition" wird im oekonomischen Kontext gemeinhin der Einsatz von Kapital fuer wirtschaftliche Projekte verstanden. Dieser Definition folgend lag der Schwerpunkt des wirtschaftshistorischen Interesses an der Entwicklung des kaufmaennischen Fernhandels und Kreditwesens in Spaetmittelalter und Frueher Neuzeit lange Zeit auf Fragen der Funktionsweise des Handels und des Finanzsektors. Das Agieren im oekonomischen Feld bildet jedoch das Handlungsspektrum oekonomischer Eliten nur unvollstaendig ab. In erheblichem Umfang wurden Gewinne nicht nur in kaufmaennische Projekte reinvestiert oder fuer Kredite zur Verfuegung gestellt, sondern auch anderen Zielsetzungen zugefuehrt: Hier ist neben dem Erwerb von Grundbesitz und Grundherrschaften etwa an die Etablierung frommer und wohltaetiger Stiftungen zu denken, an den Kapitaleinsatz fuer Architektur und bildende Kunst oder die finanzielle Foerderung von Musikern, Literaten oder Historiographen. Der finanzielle Einsatz im sozialen und kulturellen Bereich gehoert demnach elementar zur Beschreibung der Investitionspraxis kaufmaennischer Eliten in der Fruehen Neuzeit. Diesem bisher nur punktuell erforschten Aspekt geht der Band fuer Kaufmannsdynastien der Fruehen Neuzeit systematisch und vergleichend nach.

Feldman, Alex, Orthodox Mercantilism: Political Economy in the Byzantine Commonwealth. (Birmingham Byzantine and Ottoman Studies) 344 pp. 2024:4 (Routledge, UK) <715-287>
ISBN 978-1-03-237669-1 hard ¥36,179.- (税込) GB£ 130.00

This book demonstrates how the political economy of mercantilism was not simply a Western invention by various cities and kingdoms during the Renaissance, but was the natural by-product of perpetually limited growth rates and rulers' relentless pursuits of bullion. It contributes to discussions of the economic history surrounding the so-called "Great Divergence" between East and West, which would consequently lend context and credence to differences of economic thought in the world today. Additionally, it seeks to explain present economic thought as tacitly derived from implicit antique paradigms. This book advances fields of research from numismatics and sigillography to historical materialism and historical political economy.Divided into three parts, Orthodox Mercantilism firstly examines the political theology (the sovereignty) of the oecumene from the early 11th century. Secondly, it analyzes its peripheral legislation from the customary laws of newly Christianized dynasties up to the Kormchaja Kniga's adoption (the Nomokanon) by 13th-c. Orthodox dynasties across Eastern Europe. Thirdly, it explores how these dynasties (and their own satellite dynasties) hoarded finite bullion to pay for defense, resulting in the 11-14th-c. coinless period across Eastern Europe and Western Eurasia.Appealing to students and scholars alike, this book will be of interest to those studying and researching economic and mercantile history, particularly in the context of Byzantine and Eastern European societies.

An account that challenges the conventional views of African merchants under colonialism, examining the emergence and changing fortunes of indigenous entrepreneurs in Lagos, NigeriaIn Capitalism in the Colonies, A. G. Hopkins provides the first substantial assessment of the fortunes of African entrepreneurs under colonial rule. Examining the lives and careers of 100 merchants in Lagos, Nigeria, between 1850 and 1931, Hopkins challenges conventional views of the contribution made by indigenous entrepreneurs to the long-run economic development of Nigeria. He argues that African merchants in Lagos not only survived, but were also responsible for key innovations in trade, construction, farming and finance that are essential for understanding the development of Nigeria's economy.The book is based on a large, representative sample and covers a time span that traces mercantile fortunes over two and three generations. Drawing on a wide range of sources, Hopkins shows that indigenous entrepreneurs were far more adventurous than expatriate firms. African merchants in Lagos pioneered motor vehicles, sewing machines, publishing, tanneries and new types of internal trade. They founded the construction industry that built Lagos into a major port city, moved inland to start the cocoa-farming industry and developed the finance sector that is still vital to Nigeria's economy. They also took the lead in changing single-owned businesses into limited liability companies, creating freehold property rights and promoting wage labour. In short, Hopkins argues, they were the capitalists who introduced the institutions of capitalism into Nigeria. The story of African merchants in Nigeria reminds us, he writes, that economic structures have no life of their own until they are animated by the actions of creative individuals.

M.A.Denzel他編 グローバルな交易空間及び交易ルート・ハンドブック-古代から現代まで
Haeberlein, Mark / Denzel, Markus A. (Hrsg.), Handbuch globale Handelsraeume und Handelsrouten: Von der Antike bis zur Gegenwart. (De Gruyter Reference) 700 S. 2023:12 (de Gruyter Oldenbourg, GW) <715-289>
ISBN 978-3-11-043757-7 hard ¥49,203.- (税込) EUR 210.00 *

Zu den wesentlichen Charakteristika der Geschichte des Fernhandels gehoert die Tatsache, dass sich Warenstroeme haeufig auf bestimmte (maritime und kontinentale) Handelswege bzw. Wegenetze konzentrierten. Klimatische und geographische Gegebenheiten - Windverhaeltnisse, Meeresstroemungen, Passstrassen usw. - trugen dazu ebenso bei wie das Vorhandensein von Infrastrukturen (Haefen, Kaufmannsniederlassungen, Transportmoeglichkeiten, Karawansereien etc.). Trotz einer enormen Zunahme des globalen Gueterverkehrs in den letzten beiden Jahrhunderten hat sich daran bis heute grundsaetzlich nichts geaendert: Auch in der Gegenwart laeuft ein grosser Teil des Warentransports ueber mehr oder minder feste Routen, und neuralgische Punkte wie der Panamakanal, der Suezkanal oder die Strasse von Malakka haben fuer die reibungslose Abwicklung des Welthandels enorme Bedeutung. Das Handbuch gibt vor diesem Hintergrund erstmals in deutscher Sprache einen Gesamtueberblick. Damit bietet es zugleich eine Synthese der selbst fuer Fachleute kaum noch ueberschaubaren internationalen Spezialforschung zu Grossraeumen wie dem Mittelmeer, dem Atlantik und dem Indischen Ozean.

大分岐論争における歴史、政治、理論-カリフォルニア学派、世界システム分析、マルクス主義の比較分析-
Murphy, Olya, History, Politics and Theory in the Great Divergence Debate: A Comparative Analysis of the California School, World Systems Analysis and Marxism. 260 pp. 2023:12 (de Gruyter Oldenbourg, GW) <715-291>

World history suffers from a paucity of clearly articulated, convincing explanations. While the rise of postmodernism and challenges to Eurocentrism did lead to some important correctives, the pendulum has swung too far the other direction, with a corresponding danger of ‘throwing out the baby with the bathwater’. We need careful, theoretically informed debates about ways of organizing world history. What constitutes a good historical explanation? What should guide historians to choose relevant facts? Which theoretical schools could be made useful, and to what ends? These questions are especially relevant to the main topic of this book: the ‘great divergence’ between the west and the rest of the world, and how this historical rupture is to be explained. The book provides extensive critical analyses of some of the key claims in world history, analyzing their strengths as well as their major weaknesses?too often rooted in insufficient familiarity of historians with theories they discard. It also historicizes the field and the debates to partly account for what caused some theories to become more influential and others to fall into oblivion?despite the fact that the more influential frameworks are seriously flawed and some of the more marginalized ideas are more coherent and plausible. The book offers insights regarding the theoretical and political relevance of older debates about the transition to capitalism and historical materialism. Three major schools of thought in world history are critically examined through an in-depth theoretical and comparative analysis that has not been undertaken elsewhere: the so-called ‘California School’, World Systems Analysis, and Marxist theories of history, capitalism, and the transition from feudalism to capitalism. Murphy argues that, despite some of the more recent criticisms of older approaches to world history, the older theories remain indispensable for the writing of world history and for coming to terms with issues of global poverty, inequality and eco-catastrophe.

Reden, Sitta (ed.), Handbook of Ancient Afro-Eurasian Economies. Volume 3: Frontier-Zone Processes and Transimperial Exchange. 600 pp. 2023:11 (de Gruyter, GW) <715-293>
ISBN 978-3-11-060464-1 hard ¥43,333.- (税込) EUR 184.95 *

The Handbook of Ancient Afro-Eurasian Economies offers in three volumes the first comprehensive discussion of economic development in the empires of the Afro-Eurasian world region to elucidate the conditions under which large quantities of goods and people moved across continents and between empires. Volume 3: Frontier-Zone Processes and Transimperial Exchange analyzes frontier zones as particular landscapes of encounter, economic development, and transimperial network formation. The chapters offer problematizing approaches to frontier zone processes as part of and in between empires, with the goal of better understanding how and why goods and resources moved across the Afro-Eurasian region. Key frontiers in mountains and steppes, along coasts, rivers, and deserts are investigated in depth, demonstrating how local landscapes, politics, and pathways explain network practices and participation in long-distance trade. The chapters seek to retrieve local knowledge ignored in popular Silk Road models and to show the potential of frontier-zone research for understanding the Afro-Eurasian region as a connected space.

Sasson, Tehila, The Solidarity Economy: Nonprofits and the Making of Neoliberalism after Empire. 296 pp. 2024:4 (Princeton U. Pr., US) <715-294>
ISBN 978-0-691-25038-0 hard ¥8,613.- (税込) US$ 39.95

The untold story of the role of humanitarian NGOs in building the neoliberal order after empireAfter India gained independence in 1947, Britain reinvented its role in the global economy through nongovernmental aid organizations. Utilizing existing imperial networks and colonial bureaucracy, the nonprofit sector sought an ethical capitalism, one that would equalize relationships between British consumers and Third World producers as the age of empire was ending. The Solidarity Economy examines the role of nonstate actors in the major transformations of the world economy in the postwar era, showing how British NGOs charted a path to neoliberalism in their pursuit of ethical markets.Between the 1950s and 1990s, nonprofits sought to establish an alternative to Keynesianism through their welfare and development programs. Encouraging the fair trade of commodities and goods through microfinance, consumer boycotts, and corporate social responsibility, these programs emphasized decentralization, privatization, and entrepreneurship. Tehila Sasson tells the stories of the activists, economists, politicians, and businessmen who reimagined the marketplace as a workshop for global reform. She reveals how their ideas, though commonly associated with conservative neoliberal policies, were part of a nonprofit-driven endeavor by the liberal left to envision markets as autonomous and humanizing spaces, facilitating ethical relationships beyond the impersonal realm of the state.Drawing on dozens of newly available repositories from nongovernmental, international, national, and business archives, The Solidarity Economy reconstructs the political economy of these markets-from handicrafts and sugar to tea and coffee-shedding critical light on the postimperial origins of neoliberalism.
