BIBLIOGRAPHIES FOR ECO 301Y1 and ECO 303Y1: for 2009 - 2010
Observations, Notes, and Caveats
Updated on 13 August 2010
Bibliographies for the following topics in ECO 301Y1 and ECO 303Y1: are available in short and
long formats, for both the 'A' and 'B' List topics.
Note that this academic year, 2010 - 2011 , only ECO 303Y: the Economic History of Modern Europe, to 1914 (World War I) is being offered.
But last year's bibliographies for ECO 301Y (The Economic History of Later Medieval and Early Modern Europe, 1250 - 1750)retained on this website.
For each course, each year, 5 topics for the first term and another 5 topics for the second term are
chosen to constitute that year's 'A' list. These 10 topics are drawn from the Master List of Topics for Essays and General Reading for each course:
i.e., for ECO 301Y and for
ECO 303Y ,
both listed on my Home Page .
For those topics a set of readings, most of them journal
articles, drawn from the short-format bibliographies for each of the topics, will be provided for sale,
via Scholar House Productions (including copyright fees).
The remaining topics, those not chosen for the 'A' list, are ipso facto topics on the residual
'B' list, whose bibliographies are usually not updated in that year. In the following year (when the
course is given), some of the 'B' list topics will become 'A' list topics for that following year, with
updated bibliographies and a related package of readings. Most if not all of the 'A' topics from the
previous year will become 'B' list topics for that year.
Some Important Observations:
- Students are strongly urged to choose A list topics for their
term essays, all the more so since those topics will appear on the final examination. But they
are also free to choose term-essay topics from the B list.
- Students who do not choose to do the mid-year test will be required to submit a third essay,
chosen from either term, from either the A or B lists.
- That essay will be due on the final day of university classes, in April 2010.
- The short format bibliographies provide a one or two page listing of the more important
readings, for each topic, chiefly recent journal articles, the most important of which
areindicated by asterisks; and it also contains a few major questions to guide you in your
readings, class discussion, and/or in writing your essays.
- The long format bibliographies provide a fairly complete list of all publications related to the
major topic: in monographs, journal articles, collections of essays, etc; and these listings are
arranged by sub-topics,in the chronological order of their publication. All of these
bibliographies are or will be posted on this web-site. If you have difficulty in downloading
and printing materials from this web-site, I can arrange to send you the files electronically
by e-mail, but this offer extends
only to those students registered in these courses.
- The long format also contains a far more extensive list of questions; and most of these long-format bibliographies also contain statistical tables.
- Please note that only those statistical tables constructed in Excel/Quattro Pro or recent
versions of WordPerfect have been properly transformed into html format; but the pdf format
does not produce this problem.
