Aims and Scope

The Economic History Review is published quarterly and each volume contains over 800 pages. It is an invaluable source of information and is available free to members of the Economic History Society. Publishing reviews of books, periodicals and information technology, The Review will keep anyone interested in economic and social history abreast of current developments in the subject. It aims at broad coverage of themes of economic and social change, including the intellectual, political and cultural implications of these changes.

Many issues contain an essay under the heading Surveys and Speculations which discusses a particular problem in economic and social history in an adventurous way. The extensive book review section in each issue provides a guide to the latest literature on economic and social history in the British Isles and throughout the rest of the world.

Each volume also contains Essays in Bibliography and Criticism which are designed to bring readers up to date with the latest writings on a particular country and topical themes in economic and social history.

By far the best European journal for economic history... an excellent journal of world standing. '
Herman Van Der Wee.
