   schema:description "Following the approach of R.M. Hartwell, the influential historian of the British Industrial Revolution, these essays explore the cultural contexts and institutional constraints that have shaped growth and development over the past two centuries. Focusing on two central questions - why the whole world is not developed, and why Britain was the first industrial nation - Capitalism in Context offers new perspectives on why economic development took place where and when it did. These studies will appeal to economists, historians, and social scientists alike for their wide-ranging treatments of economic development and cultural change."@en ;
