A history of the modern world by R. R Palmer ( Book )
203 editions published between 1950 and 2014 in 8 languages and held by 4,677 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A History of the Modern World is a careful, well-written narrative of major events from the late Middle Ages to the political and religious conflicts at the beginning of the twenty-first century. It offers a wide-ranging survey that helps readers understand both the complexities of great events (e.g., the French Revolution, the First World War, or the collapse of great imperial systems) and the importance of historical analysis. It also provides a careful summary of the modern political changes that have affected the social and cultural development of all modern cultures. Throughout the book's lifetime, A History of the Modern World has been hailed as an elegantly written historical narrative, filled with analysis and balanced historical insights as well as its traditional attention to the processes of historical change, conflict, and political transformations. The tenth edition has been updated to include the clear maps, the survey of global economic connections, the chronologies, the illustrations, and the up-to-date bibliographies that today's students need and expect. - Publisher

An economist in troubled times : writings by Jean Baptiste Say ( Book )
4 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
J.-B. Say is remembered most commonly as a disciple of Adam Smith and in particular as the author of what later economists have called Say's law: often simplified as the idea that "supply creates its own demand." Here the distinguished historian R.R. Palmer shows that Say was an interesting figure for a multitude of reasons. Say modified and extended some of Adam Smith's insights, became a friend and correspondent of Thomas Malthus and David Ricardo, and was the first professor of political economy in France. His life coincided with the French Revolution and its long aftermath and with the Industrial Revolution in Great Britain, on both of which he had much to say
