Historians and economists will find here what their fields have in common--the movement since the 1950s known variously as "cliometrics," "economic history," or "historical economics." A leading figure in the movement, Donald McCloskey, has compiled, with the help of George Hersh and a panel of distinguished advisors, the only bibliography of historical economics. The many thousands of items cover all countries for all periods in which historical economics has been written. It will be useful to all economic historians, as well as quantitative historians, applied economists, historical demographers, business historians, national income accountants, and social historians.

Industry Reviews

"McCloskey and Hersh have produced a useful guide to the literature, and one that meets their stated objective of providing a 'usefully coherent' book which could serve 'as a starting point for further research and as a reminder for reading lists.'" Joshua L. Rosenbloom, Journal of Economic History
