Perspektiven der Wirtschaftsgeschichte
In the series Perspektiven der Wirtschaftsgeschichte, books are published that present new insights into economic activity and structures in the “economic modern age”. Covering the period from the 18th century up to the recent present, particular emphasis is placed on the historical influence on economic actors and institutions.
The series takes a theory-driven approach. It brings together economic and historiographical thought by integrating concepts from the cultural sciences. In this way, it contributes to the profile of the cultural economy. The aims are to strengthen the position of economic history in the battle of historical explanatory models and to promote new perspectives on the development of the economy and society up to the present.
