The third volume presents the process of economic change in the same countries. The main emphasis of the book is on institutions: on the changes in economic mechanism and their consequences for the position of the household both as a supplier of labour and as a consumer unit. The process of institutional change is examined at all stages against the background of planned and actual economic dynamics and in the interaction with political developments and social transformations.
'Clearly written and well documented, the book expertly balances generalization and national detail... this volume should prove an important new addition to the limited stock of standard works in European economic history.'Economic History Review
'What the essays lack in methodological and analytical sophistication they make up for in richness of detail and keenness of observation. These essays will be read with profit not only by economic but also by political historians of the twentieth century.'
John Komlos, University of Pittsburgh, Journal of Modern History, Vol 62 No 3 Sept '90
