A stimulating and fascinating volume that should be in the library of anyone interested in economic history or technology.
— John Vincent Nye
A most important book...[It] contains a conspectus of the variety of work that goes into our studies nowadays: biometrics and cliometrics; theory and a review of theory; broad sweeps of generalizations, detailed research on a micro scale, and international comparison; some sociology; and some institutional politics...A rich offering.
— Sidney Pollard
