BIBLIOGRAPHIES FOR ECO 303Y1: 'A'-LIST TOPICS FOR 2012 - 2013: Short Format

Topics in the Economic History of Modern Europe to 1914

Updated: 3 January 2013:

These bibliographies are in the short-format only. Please see the general notes about bibliographies for undergraduate economic history courses.

The following topics are on the 'A'-list for 2012 - 2013 and some of them will be transferred to the 'B'-list for the following year (if this course is given again), when most of this year's 'B'-list topics will, conversely, become 'A'-list topics. Each year a different set of 10 topics, 5 topics for each of the two terms, is chosen from the Master List of essay topics, though with some duplications, of the most important topics.

The following topics are numbered in the sequence 1 - 10; but the term 'Topic no.' following each of these numbers refers to the Topic Number in the Master List of Essay/Tutorial Topics for Eco. 303Y1. You should refer to this Master List for a more detailed discussion of the debates about and thus the significance of each of these major topics, in European economic history.

The bibliographies are presented in both PDF format (default) and in MS Word. To retrieve them, click on the blue-highlighted topic number for the PDF version, and on the highlighted words 'Also available in MS Word', for that version; but do so only in the html version of this document (since the pdf version will not give you that access). There are no statistical tables or any other appendices in the short-format of these bibliographies. Usually presented in just two or three pages, they contain the most important readings and some key questions to be considered.

Note: Only the first-term topics have been updated; and the second term topics will not be updated until late December 2012. In the meantime, I have posted the previous versions of these bibliographies.
