The Making of the Modern World, Part II: 1851-1914 now available

We have purchased The Making of the Modern World, Part II: 1851-1914. Access is available now and updates records will soon appear in the library catalogue and LibGuides (including our A-Z list of databases).

Following on from the acclaimed The Making of the Modern World: Goldsmiths'-Kress Library of Economic Literature, 1450-1850 (which we already own), The Making of the Modern World, Part II: 1851-1914 takes The Making of Modern World series to the end of the 19th century with approx. 5,000 additional titles. Combined, the two collections give students and researchers unprecedented access to nearly 500 years of primary sources detailing the social, political and economic formation of the modern world.

Comprised mainly of monographs, reports, correspondence, speeches and surveys, MOMW Part II: 1851-1914 can be cross-searched with the original MOMW through an enhanced user interface. Part II extends and deepens researchers' access to international coverage of 19th century social, economic and business history as well as political science, technology, industrialisation and the birth of the modern corporation.

MOMW Part II: 1851-1914 consists of approx. 1.2 million pages (approx. 5,000 titles) of digitised microfilm and newly sourced original documents from the world's key collections of economic literature.
