The Spread of Modern Industry to the Periphery since 1871

Edited by Kevin Hjortshøj O'Rourke and Jeffrey Gale Williamson

  • Explores the nineteenth- and twentieth-century spread of modern industry to the global periphery
  • Demonstrates how, in the twenty-first century, economies in Asia, Latin America and even sub-Saharan Africa are converging on the historically-wealthy economies of Europe and North America
  • Seeks to understand the economic, historical, and political implications of this shift in industry
  • Offers a comparative assessment of twelve regions: Russia, East-Central Europe, Southeast Europe, Italy, the Middle East, sub-Saharan Africa, South Asia, Southeast Asia, Northeast Asia, China, Northern Latin America, and Southern Latin America
