War, Wine, And Taxes (eBook)
The Political Economy Of Anglo-French Trade, 1689-1900
de John V. C. Nye
Sobre o livro
Aims to debunk the myth that Britain was a free-trade nation during and after the industrial revolution, by revealing how the British used tariffs as a mercantilist tool to politically weaken France. This book shows that Britain did not transform smoothly from a mercantilist state in the 18th century to a bastion of free trade in the late 19th.
