Charles P. Kindleberger has written many influential books in economics over the past 60 years, the most recent of which are: Economic Laws and Economic History (1990), Historical Economics: Art of Science? (1990), and Mariners and Markets (1992).

Review:

"The most important part of the revision [in this second edition] is in extending the treatment to cover much of the experience of the last 10 years of European monetary integration....Full of ideas and fascinating information. It is a lively cocktail that has proved immensely popular with
both undergraduate and graduate students and also with others who simply want to be acquainted quickly with some aspect of European monetary and financial history. It is written in the felicitous style for which Kindleberger has become noted. This edition will prove to be as successful as its
predecessor." --Economic Affairs

"The best text available on the financial history of Western Europe. I find it fascinating to read a couple of pages and learn something new."--Philip Coelho, Ball State University

"Excellent history, only one in the field."--Eugene White, Rutgers University

Praise for the first edition: "An astonishing achievement....A work of a vast range of topics...written with clarity, subtlety, and derived from sources in French, English, and German....A book anyone even pretending to a knowledge of monetary history must have."--Journal of Economic
History

"Will end up on many undergraduate reading lists, whilst its extensive bibliography will prove a boon to [those] working their way into the field."--Economic History Review

"A splendid book....It reads like Professor Kindleberger talking--which is surely high praise."--The World Economy
