The European miracle : environments, economies, and geopolitics in the history of Europe and Asia by E. L Jones( Book )
4 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 8 libraries worldwide
Why did modern states and economies develop first in the peripheral and late-coming culture of Europe? This historical puzzle looms behind every study of industrialization and economic development. In this analytical and comparative work Eric Jones sees the economic condition forming where natural environments and political systems meet: Europe's economic rise is explained as a favoured interaction between them, contrasting with the frustrating pattern of their interplay in the Ottoman empire, India and China. For the third edition Professor Jones has added a new Preface and Afterword

The film offers reconstructions of pivotal tragedies and triumphs exactly as they happened, using experts, as well as recollections from two of the men who first climbed the north face successfully in 1938
