Using data from Britain, France, Germany, the United States, and the world economy between 1850 and 1973, this book presents a clear and systematic examination of the evidence for long-term patterns of economic growth. The author refutes the existence of long (Kondratieff) waves in the course of economic development, and instead presents persuasive evidence for a growth pattern characterized by episodic long swing fluctuations of twenty to thirty years, documenting and explaining these phases in a historical perspective.

"Solomou's achievement in this terse and clear book...is remarkable. His handling of the main statistical series on growth is masterly...his knowledge of the secondary sources is clearly encyclopaedic...Anyone interested in the recent economic history of the major Western economies, or the world economy, should read and reread Solomou..." The Economic Journal
"Overall, Solomou's arguments are plausible and his reasoning cogent. He has amassed a great amount of information to support his conclusions. His prose style is clear and crisp..." The Times Higher Education Supplement
