"The most striking feature of the post-war Western economy, is its extraordinary growth. This topic is the theme of the first part of Professor Postan's book, which provides an overall survey of economic and social changes in Western Europe since the War. In tracing the recovery of the economy in the late 'forties, and its uninterrupted expansion throughout the 'fifties and 'sixties, he considers its contributory causes one by one. Features such as the movement of population, full employment, investment, technological progress, expanding foreign trade, and new attitudes of business leaders are analysed and placed in their relative order of importance." -- From the back cover.
