Overview

In 1806, Napoleon attempted to seal off the entire European continent from British imports. This ambitious protectionist experiment set off extensive debates about questions of economic theory. Did economic isolation foster the wealth of nations? Could international law prevent the outbreak of a maritime trade war? Or would global free trade promote wealth and peace among all nations? In this book, Alix Winter studies how the continental system served as a focal point for public discussions about fundamental economical questions and how the early nineteenth century witnessed the radicalisation of Enlightenment liberal economic theories.
