This course surveys major trends in economic history from the industrial Revolution up to the eve of World War I. Besides the Industrial Revolution itself, topics will include the spread of modern industry to continental Europe, North America, and Japan; early "globalization"; the gold standard; and the economic impact of imperialism. Basic knowledge of world history and economic theory is helpful, but there are no prerequisites.
