Résumé :

The theme of this volume is challenging both in its scale and in its scope. Its purpose is to take account of the state of research and writing on the symbiotic relationship between banking, trade and industry and the state during the rise and expansion of capitalism, and to compare and assess the results on order to widen current perspectives. Topics range from the origins of banking in the Middle Ages, through the influence of banks in leading industrial economics as well as in ‘latecomer’ economies, to the expansion of banking in America and Asia.
The volume has been edited in connection with the session ‘Banking, trade and industry in Europe, America and Asia (XIII-XX centuries)’ at the 18th International Congress of Historical Sciences, Montreal, 1995.

Alice Teichova is emeritus professor of economic history, University of East Anglia, honorary fellow of Girton College, Cambridge, and senior research associate, London School of Economics and Political Science.

Ginette Kurgavan Hentenryk is professor of history, Free University of Brussels

Dieter Ziegler is reader in economic history, University of Bielefeld.
