EH.T: Re: EH.T: world economic history course
================= EH.TEACH POSTING ================= I've had pretty good luck with Cameron's _Consise Economic History of the World_ plus supplements. Cameron's book is inadequate in its coverage of the world outside Europe, so I've used Jones et al, _Coming Full Circle_ on East Asia. If I were to teach it again soon, I'd add Salvucci, _Latin America and the World Economy_. I lectured and had small bits of discussion. One nice break the last time I taught it was when a colleague who had written on the Chinese famine of 1959-61 gave a presentation on that topic. He drew some nice comparisons to the current situation in North Korea. It was a big hit that generated lots of discussion. When I asked at the end of the course what students wanted to learn more about, that is, what should be added to the course, the most common answers concerned East Asia. Good luck!
