Global Economic History Series

The Global Economic History Series aims to publish works contributing to the description, clarification and explanation of long-term changes in world economy, including such issues as the differential economic development of various countries and regions, and the economic and social inequalities that resulted from this imbalanced pattern. The series includes studies which combine a theoretical perspective with detailed historical investigations, and utilise a comparative perspective to unravel the mysteries of global economic development. General Editors: Maarten Prak and Jan Luiten van Zanden Authors are cordially invited to submit proposals and/or full manuscripts to either the series editors or the publisher at BRILL, Wendel Scholma. Manuscripts (in English) should be 90,000 to 180,000 words in length and may include black and white illustrations. The editors are interested in receiving proposals for specialist monographs and syntheses, multi-authored contributions such as conference proceedings, as well as thematic issues, source translations and edited texts. Brill Open offers you the choice to make your research freely accessible online in exchange for a Publication Charge. This can be by choice or to comply with funding mandates or university requirements. Brill offers various options of Open Access; for more information please go to the Brill Open webpage. The series published an average of one volume per year over the last 5 years.
