Das »Handbuch der Wirtschafts- und Sozialgeschichte Deutschlands« von Friedrich-Wilhelm Henning vermittelt in vier Bänden grundlegende und umfassende Kenntnisse über die wirtschaftliche und gesellschaftliche Entwicklungen der Deutschen vom frühen Mittelalter bis heute.

Der Autor des Handbuchs ist einer der anerkannten Experten der Disziplin. Seine konkrete und anschauliche Darstellung der Grundlinien von mehr als 1200 Jahren deutscher Wirtschafts- und Sozialgeschichte wird ein Standardwerk für alle werden, die sich mit der Geschichte von Wirtschaft und Gesellschaft Mitteleuropas vertraut machen wollen.
Band 1 behandelt die Zeit vom frühen Mittelalter bis zum Ende des 18. Jahrhunderts; Band 2, Band 3/I und Band 3/II werden 19. bzw. 20. Jahrhundert zum Gegenstand haben. Hennings bekannte »Wirtschafts- und Sozialgeschichte« (UTB, 3. Bde.) war auf die unerläßliche Grundinformation für Studenten der Geschichte und Wirtschaftswissenschaften beschränkt. Das neue Werk ist aus dem vielfach geäußerten Bedürfnis entstanden, den erfolgreichen Studienbüchern ein grundlegend erweitertes wissenschaftliches Handbuch folgen zu lassen, das, auf neuestem Forschungsstand die deutsche Wirtschafts- und Sozialgeschichte in voller Breite und Tiefe behandelt und den notwendigen wissenschaftlichen Apparat zur Verfügung stellt.

Die Reihe ist mit Band 3/II abgeschlossen.

This peer-reviewed book series provides a forum for scholarly publications on the history of the cultural and material frameworks that shape the production and circulation of knowledge. It aims to explore intersections between the history of technology, cultural history, legal history, economic history, and the history of science.

The series publishes studies on institutions and actors effecting the circulation of knowledge; on media (artefacts, printed texts, manuscripts, visual representations) that transmit knowledge across time and space; on the social contexts and infrastructures that generate, support, or constrain knowledge creation and transmission; and on the role of the circulation of knowledge in economic, technological, and cultural change.

The series includes monographs and collaborative volumes. The editors welcome submissions for long-term and comparative studies as well as more focused studies.

Knowledge Infrastructure and Knowledge Economy was initially published as a subseries of History of Science and Medicine Library; five volumes appeared as part of that subseries.

Intercultural Trade, Commercial Litigation, and Legal Pluralism
Series Editors: and
The book series Mediterranean Reconfigurations is devoted to the analyses of historical change in the Mediterranean over a long period (15th - 19th centuries), challenging totalizing narratives that “Westernize” Mediterranean history as having led naturally to European domination in the 19th and 20th centuries. In reality, the encounters of Muslim, Jewish, Armenian and Protestant merchants and sailors with legal customs and judicial practices different from their own gave rise to legal and cultural creativity throughout the Mediterranean. Through the prism of commercial litigation, the series thus offers a more accurate and deeper understanding of the practices of intercultural trade, in a context profoundly shaped by legal pluralism and multiple and overlapping spaces of jurisdiction. Comparative case studies offer empirically-based indicators for both regional and more general processes, here called "Mediterranean reconfigurations", e.g. the changing interplay and positioning of individual and institutional actors on different levels in a variety of commercial and legal contexts.
For a long time now, there has been a real lack of quantitative information on the economy of China. Recently, some volumes have appeared dealing with, for example, price series as well as with some other isolated topics, but as yet a systematic overview of long-run quantitative data is still lacking. This becomes especially problematical since economic and social history is increasing relying on quantitative methods.
Therefore, in a combined effort of several Western and Chinese scholars and research institutions, this book series collects data for the compilation of a Chinese historical statistics from 960 onwards. The main objective is to fill in the gap in the quantification of the economy of China and to analyze its long-term evolution in this period. This will be done by individual scholars focusing on individual sectors of the Chinese economy.

This is a subseries of Global Economic History Series.
Series Editor:
Studies in Political Economy of Global Labor and Work is a peer-reviewed book series that explores the historical development and transformation of workers’ organizations, trade unions, and class conflict in the broader context of the changing global capitalist political economy. The series also investigates how workers are responding to the proliferation of neo-liberal ideas and institutions that are resistant to labor organizing and social democracy. Thus, the series welcomes volumes on global movements related to changes in the work process, industrial restructuring, labor law, migration and immigration, financialization, imperialism and workers’ struggles, as well as autonomism and syndicalism, insurrections, general strikes, and other responses to globalizing capitalism that shape labor movements.

Studies in Political Economy of Global Labor and Work examines the character of work in the contemporary world while paying particular attention to the effects of economic restructuring, immigration, and anti-labor political forces on the capacity of unions and the labor movement to represent, defend, and empower workers. The series also examines how political institutions, businesses, and labor organizations in the Global North and South have shaped worker power on the job and in society. The premise of this series is the well-established and broadly acknowledged assessment that worker power has drastically declined as multinational capitalist corporations and international institutions forge neo-liberal economic policies and that the erosion of worker power more broadly erodes social democracy as corporate interests gain greater control over economic and political power. The volumes in the series examine contemporary labor in the world through an array of lenses from across the social sciences, including gender, class, race, sexuality, religion, language, and nationality.

Manuscripts should be at least 80,000 words in length (including footnotes and bibliography). Manuscripts may also include illustrations and other visual material. The editors will consider proposals for original monographs and edited collections.

Authors are cordially invited to submit proposals and/or full manuscripts by email to the publisher Jason Prevost. Please direct all other correspondence to Associate Editor Katie Short.

Authors will find general proposal guidelines at the Brill Author Gateway.

Historical materialism as Marx understood this was always an integrated conception or field of research, not one divided into separate disciplines. The essays gathered in this volume are a remarkable example of how this works across a wide range of subjects as diverse as agrarian history, capitalism, Hegel’s influence on Marx, and class struggles in India. They were written over some fifty years of both activism and academic work, embodying Banaji’s lifelong engagement with Marxist theory. His recent papers on merchant capitalism can also be found here, along with a biographical sketch that sets all of his work in context.
Der Band reflektiert systematisch das Verhältnis der Unternehmensgeschichte zu anderen Disziplinen der Geschichtswissenschaft, indem die Beiträge die methodischen wie inhaltlichen Schnittpunkte für zukünftige Forschungen aufzeigen – etwa zwischen Unternehmensgeschichte und Sozialgeschichte, Kulturgeschichte, Geschlechtergeschichte, Umweltgeschichte, Kolonialgeschichte, Wissenschaftsgeschichte oder Rechtsgeschichte. Jedes der instruktiven Kapitel gibt Anregungen dafür, wie die Unternehmensgeschichte in besonderer Weise dazu beitragen kann, wirtschaftliche Themen auch fernab quantitativer Verfahren für Historiker:innen verständlich zu machen und so maßgeblich zur ökonomischen Fundierung der Geschichtswissenschaft beizutragen.
