New e-Resource - The Making of the Modern World: Part I (1450-1850)

We are delighted to announce that we now have perpetual access to The Making of the Modern World Part I: The Goldsmiths’-Kress Collection, 1450-1850.

The Making of the Modern World is the most comprehensive collection in existence for the study of early economic, political, business and social history, and is an invaluable resource for researching economic theory and history from this period. 

It contains over 61,000 primary source documents and books essential to the understanding of the social, political and economic development of the western world, from the mid-15th to the mid-19th century.

Drawn from two pre-eminent collections - The Goldsmiths’ Library of Economic Literature at the University of London and The Kress Collection of Business and Economics at the Harvard Business School - this unrivalled online library fully documents the dynamics of Western trade and wealth that shaped the world during this time.

It offers many new ways of understanding the age of exploration and discovery; global trade; the Industrial Revolution and the development of modern capitalism; banking; finance; transportation and manufacturing; slavery; colonization; the Atlantic world; social history; gender, etc  

In many ways, MMO Part I is an extension and expansion of Eighteenth Century Collections Online.

NB:  individual records for the content will be added to SAULCAT at a later stage
