The Making of the Modern World

Based on the Goldsmiths’ Library of Economic Literature at the University of London and the Kress Collection of Business and Economics at Harvard University, The Making of the Modern World includes more than 60,000 books and 450 journals. The scope of the collection is much broader than economic history, ranging from political writings, works on international relations, international trade and commerce, and slavery, to travel narratives, legal cases, and foreign government publications. The Making of the Modern World uses the same platform as Eighteenth Century Collections Online, with both subject and name indexing. This digital collection comes with catalog records for each individual work in the collection, and these records will be added to our online catalog for ease of access.
