The ABC-CLIO World History Companion to Capitalism

From Adam Smith and the Industrial Revolution to Wall Street and multinational corporations, capitalism has emerged as one of the world's leading economic systems. This work traces the evolution of capitalism from its roots in medieval Europe's rigid economy, through the laissez faire abuses of the nineteenth century, to its contemporary form as shaped by competition with socialism. Covering the period from 1450 to the present, this work examines significant laws, government policies, treaties, events, concepts, and people. Entries include Federal Reserve System, Great Depression (1929-1939), International Monetary Fund, Privatization Revolution, Refeudalization, and Welfare State. Written clearly and concisely for the general reader, each entry gives historical facts and social context, not only defining the term itself, but clarifying and describing how it influenced and shaped the economic, political, and social fabric of society at large. Each entry also includes cross-references to related terms and bibliographic citations. An introduction, a comprehensive bibliography, and a subject index complete this work.

The ABC-CLIO World History Companion to the Industrial Revolution

"Revolution" is a powerful, violent word. But it is scarcely powerful or violent enough to describe the changes created by the process known as the industrial revolution. That radical upheaval, which began in England two centuries ago and spread around the globe, completely remade human society. In his introduction to this volume, historian Peter N. Stearns calls the industrial revolution "one of those rare occasions in world history when the human species has altered its framework of existence." In this unique volume, Stearns and coauthor John Hinshaw examine this process of fundamental change, both from a global vantage point and close-up. They chronicle the progress of industrialization f...

The ABC-CLIO Companion to American Reconstruction, 1862-1877

The ABC-CLIO Companion to American Reconstruction, 1862-1877 thoroughly documents the personalities, politics, organizations, legislation, ideas, incidents, exploitation, and power struggles that constituted Reconstruction. Providing basic, unbiased information on all aspects of the era, it even-handedly illustrates the period's impact on the widely varying factions in both the North and South. Organized in a well-defined, alphabetical format, more than 150 entries cover a range of topics from African American, abolitionist, and Rebel thoughts on emancipation to the enterprises and opinions of diverse personalities such as Jefferson Davis, Frederick Douglass, and Horace Greeley, the enactment of Jim Crow laws, and the formation of the Ku Klux Klan. A detailed chronology of events and an extensive bibliography are also included.
