Economic History Classics

During 2006 EH.Net published eight “Classic Reviews.” Modeled along the lines of our earlier Project 2000 and Project 2001 series, reviewers “reintroduce” each book to the profession, “explaining its significance at the time of publication and why it has endured as a classic.” Each review summarizes the book’s key findings, methods and arguments, as it puts it into the larger context and discusses any weaknesses.

Project 2000/2001

In addition to publishing reviews of recent releases, EH.Net offers two special collections of reviews. Project 2000 features a series of review essays on significant works in twentieth century economic history. These essays survey the works that have had the most influence on the field of economic history and highlight the intellectual accomplishments of twentieth-century economic historians. Project 2001 continues the series with reviews of twelve additional influential works in the field from any time period.

Forthcoming Book Reviews

We try to review all new contributions to economic and business history. Toward that ambitious goal, we can always use suggestions and additional reviewers. Our reviews are emailed to subscribers to the EH.Net Review electronic list and archived in the Book Review Library. The link below offers a summary snapshot of our reviews pipeline.
