1 Eric Jones
The European Miracle: Environments, Economies and Geopolitics in the History of Europe and Asia
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 2003; 052152783X / 9780521527835; Paperback; New; 
Why did modern states and economies develop first in the peripheral and late-coming culture of Europe? This historical puzzle looms behind every study of industrialization and economic development. In this analytical and comparative work Eric Jones sees the economic condition forming where natural environments and political systems meet: Europe’s economic rise is explained as a favoured interaction between them, contrasting with the frustrating pattern of their interplay in the Ottoman empire, India and China. For the third edition Professor Jones has added a new Preface and Afterword. Contents Part I. Eurasia: 1. Environmental and social conjectures; 2. Disasters and capital accumulation; Part II. Europe: 3. Technological drift; 4. The discoveries and ghost acreage; 5. The market economy; 6. The states system; 7. Nation-states; Part III. The World: 8. Beyond Europe; Part IV. Asia: 9. Islam and the Ottoman Empire; 10. India and the Mughal Empire; 11. China and the Ming and Manchu Empires; Part V. Eurasia: 12. Summary and comparison; Annotated bibliographical guide; Bibliography and supplementary guide; Index. Printed Pages: 344 with 8 tables and 1 map. 008706
