I’ve been reading chapters from these two books, so I thought I’d share the links. I can’t comment in detail since I haven’t read them entirely.
- draft of a forthcoming (2007) book. A Farewell to Alms: A Brief Economic History of the World (4.1 MB pdf) by Gregory Clark. This is the final draft.
- draft of Brad DeLong‘s (still unpublished) book Slouching Towards Utopia: The Economic History of the Twentieth Century. It’s a draft but accompanied with graphs and tables, so it’s useful.
Both autors are lecturers of economic history at their respective universities.
