Very Good. Printed wrappers, 8vo, 22 cm, x, 213 pp. "Recent years have seen notable developments in the study of economic history. The pace of change has meant that new interpretations, and much research, have appeared in articles rather than books. The purpose of this series is to make such scattered and sometimes inaccessible material readily available. Each volume contains six or more contributions to a particular debate, together with a substantial critical introduction and supplementary bibliography. Mercantilism is one of those labels which get attached to historical concepts and give rise to much argument. To some the term has acquired so wide a meaning as to become meaningless; to others it remains a valuable shorthand for economic thought and policy in early modern Europe. The articles which Dr Coleman has reproduced in this book (including two newly translated from the German) are chiefly concerned with the continuing debate on mercantilism considered as economic policy rather than as economic thought."-from the blurb.
