'A masterful survey that puts the history back in economic history. It will make an outstanding textbook for undergraduate courses in nineteenth-century European economic history.' George Grantham, McGill University

'After his masterful [An] Economic History of Twentieth-Century Europe, Ivan Berend gives us the indispensable companion volume on the nineteenth century, another masterpiece in comparative economic history. Few scholars can rival Berend's deep knowledge of the multifarious European economies, their mutual interaction and slow integration, as well as the complex links between the economy and the cultural, social and political developments that make Europe so complex and unique. This is a 'must read' book for students and the general educated public alike.' Gianni Toniolo, Duke University and Libera Università degli Studi Sociali, Roma

'Professor Berend's knowledge of European comparative economic history is unparalleled, and he here offers a wide-ranging and deep analysis of that subject, illuminating the crucial issue of uneven continental development in the long nineteenth century. Combining an impressive variety of analytical frameworks and approaches, his study fills an important gap with confidence and persuasive insight.' Barry Supple, University of Cambridge

'Writing [a] new economic history of Europe from a regional perspective is a very ambitious project and an increasingly difficult task for a single individual. I can only praise and admire Professor Berend for his ambition, erudition, and courage. The coverage of multiple dimensions, economic, social and cultural, of economic disparities during nineteenth-century industrialisation in Europe is really impressive.' Leandro Prados de la Escosura, Universidad Carlos III, Madrid
