The world that trade created : society, culture, and the world economy, 1400 to the present by Kenneth Pomeranz( Book )
40 editions published between 1998 and 2015 in English and held by 942 libraries worldwide
Why are railroad tracks separated by the same four feet, eight inches as ancient Roman roads? How did 19th-century Europeans turn mountains of bird excrement from Peru into mountains of gold? Where has most of the world's oil come from in the 20th century? This new edition of The World That Trade Created reveals the answers to dozens of tantalizing questions like these. In a series of brief, highly readable vignettes the authors bring to life international trade and its actors--including migrants and merchants, pirates and privateers, sailors and slaves, traders and tree-tappers. In the process they make clear that the seemingly modern concept of economic globalization has deep historical roots. The authors also demonstrate that economic activity cannot be divorced from social and cultural contexts. This second edition provides enhanced coverage of Africa, the Middle East, and the 20th century, and features eighteen new vignettes, including two new pieces on oil
The world that trade created : society, culture, and the world economy, 1400-the present by Kenneth Pomeranz( Book )
2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 792 libraries worldwide
"Authors Pomeranz and Topik offer unique and entertaining historical perspectives on the world economy, showing that much of twentieth-century "globalization" goes back centuries." "Easily accessible to the general reader, these articles by two well-respected historians nonetheless touch on complex historical and contemporary issues. They are grouped in thematic chapters, each with an introduction drawing out some of the deeper implications for understanding how today's world economy came into being."--Jacket
Trade and gunboats : the United States and Brazil in the age of empire by Steven Topik( Book )
1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 484 libraries worldwide
"Late-19th-century US commercial policies were chiefly business-driven but met with little success in Brazil because US business leaders were largely ignorant of market conditions there. Brazil, for its part, was disappointed in its hopes for privileged access to the US sugar market. These commercial and diplomatic relations, even though imperfectly realized, did support development of republican institutions in Brazil"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58

The global coffee economy in Africa, Asia and Latin America, 1500-1989 ( Book )
20 editions published between 2003 and 2006 in English and held by 389 libraries worldwide
Each cup of coffee comes from far away. It was grown in Brazil, Colombia, Vietnam, or one of the other hundred producing lands on five continents. It isa palpable and long-standing manifestation of globalization. For five hundred years coffee has been grown in tropical countries for consumption in temperate regions. This volume brings together scholars from nine countries who study coffee markets and societies over the last five centuries in fourteen countries on four continents and across the Indian and Pacific Oceans, with a special emphasis on the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The chapters analyze the creation and function of commodity, labor, and financial markets; the role of race, ethnicity, gender, and class inthe formation of coffee societies; the interaction between technology and ecology; and the impact of colonial powers, nationalist regimes, and the forces of the world economy in the forging of economic development and political democracy
States and sovereignty in the global economy by Steven Topik( Book )
16 editions published between 1999 and 2002 in English and Undetermined and held by 324 libraries worldwide
The world is changing very swiftly at the end of the 20th century. New developments in information technology, an increasing flow of information and cultural exchanges, and the rapidity with which trade and investment now takes place has given rise to uncertainty. This book seeks to understand the nature of these changes and find out whether this process of globalization is in fact something new. In particular it examines the impact of change on the sovereignty of the nation state. The authors consider the historical development of the state in the global economy, the forces that have created the modern global economy, regional issues of globalization and the importance of the state. Also included are a series of case studies from around the world. The text provides a combination of theoretical and case material
Global markets transformed, 1870-1945 by Steven Topik( Book )
9 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 100 libraries worldwide
Offering a fresh look at trade during the second industrial revolution, Global Markets Transformed describes a world of commodities on the move--wheat and rice, coffee and tobacco, oil and rubber, all jostling around the planet through a matrix of producers, processors, transporters, and buyers. Steven C. Topik and Allen Wells discuss how innovations in industrial and agricultural production, transportation, commerce, and finance transformed the world economy from 1870 to 1945. Topik and Wells trace the evolution of global chains of commodities, from basic food staples and stimulants to strategically important industrial materials, that linked the agricultural and mineral-producing areas of Latin America, Asia, and Africa to European and North American consumers and industrialists. People living a great distance apart became economically intertwined as never before. Yet laborers and consumers at opposite ends of commodity chains remained largely invisible to one another. Affluent American automobile owners who were creating the skyrocketing demand for tires, for example, knew almost nothing about poor Brazilian tappers who sweated in the Amazon to supply the rubber necessary for their vehicles. As commodity chains stretched out around the world, more goods were bound up in markets that benefited some countries more than others. Global Markets Transformed highlights the lessons and legacy of the early years of globalization--when the world's population doubled, trade quadrupled, industrial output multiplied fivefold, and the gap between rich and poor regions grew ever wider. - Publisher's description
