BIBLIOGRAPHIES FOR ECO 303Y: 'B'-LIST TOPICS for 2012 - 2013: Short Format

Topics in the Economic History of Modern Europe, to 1914

Updated 10 September 2012

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 'B'-list for 2012 - 2013 and some of them will be transferred to the 'A'-list for the following year (if the course is given again), when most of this year's 'A'-list topics will, conversely, become 'B'-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 occasional duplications, of the most important topics.

The numbers for these topics are the Topic Numbers given 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.

Please note: The B-List Bibliographies have not been updated; only the A-List Bibliographies have been updated.

These bibliographies are presented in both PDF [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 in MS Word ', for that version. 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.

FIRST SEMESTER: September - December 2012
