The eighth and final volume of The Cambridge Economic History of Europe is the third of a group of three that cover the economic history of the western world during and since the Industrial Revolution. The main theme of this volume is the role played in the growth of industrial economies by the development of economic and social policies. The volume also discusses these factors in detail for the principal economies, and includes detailed studies of France, Britain, Germany, the United States, Austria-Hungary, the countries of Eastern Europe, Russia, Sweden, and Japan.
The second volume of The Cambridge Economic History of Europe, first published in 1952, was a survey by an international group of specialist scholars covering trade and industry in pre-Roman, Roman and Byzantine Europe, the medieval trade of northern and southern Europe, and the histories of medieval woollen manufacture, mining and metallurgy, and building in stone. This second edition, in addition to revising most chapters and the bibliographies appended to them, also fills gaps which arose from the wartime and post-war circumstances in which the first edition was written. New chapters provide accounts of the trade and industry of eastern Europe, of medieval Europe's trade with Asia and Africa, and of medieval coinage and currency. Taken with volumes I and III of the series, this volume is designed to complete a comprehensive review of the economic history of medieval Europe as a whole. It was planned by the late Sir Michael Postan, and was largely completed under his editorship.
The seventh volume of The Cambridge Economic History of Europe is the second of a group of three to cover the economic history of the Western world (including the United States and Japan) during and since the Industrial Revolution. The main theme of this volume is the role played in the growth of the industrial economies by capital, labour, and enterprise. Separate chapters study each of these factors for the principal economies.

Chapters II, III and sections 1, 3 of Chapter VII have been brought up to date. All the other chapters and sections of Chapter VII have either been re-written or replaced by wholly new versions by different authors.
