This collection of essays by Alexander Gerschenkron, who has been called "the doyen of economic history in the United States," is a companion volume to the author's highly acclaimed Economic Backwardness in Historical Perspective. The essays range over a wide variety of subjects, but the major theme, as in Gerschenkron's previous book, is the conditions of industrial development, particularly in regard to nineteenth-century Europe. The book is divided into three parts. In Part I, Methodology, the essays are: "On the Concept of Continuity in History," "Some Methodological Problems in Economic History," and "Reflections on Ideology as a Methodological and Historical Problem." Part II, Problems in Economic History, deals with "The Typology of Industrial Development as a Tool of Analysis," "The Industrial Development of Italy: A Debate with Rosario Romeo," "The Modernization of Entrepreneurship," "Russia: Agrarian Policies and Industrialization, 1861-1914," and "City Economies Then and Now." In Part III, The Political Framework, the essays are: "Reflections on the Economic Aspects of Revolution," "The Changeability of a Dictatorship," and "The Stability of Dictatorships." A series of appendices presents reviews and review articles by Gerschenkron.
