In the field of economic history, the Netherlands Economic History Archives hold a central position. This book surveys the role the NEHA has played in Dutch economic history—serving as the primary source depository and contributing to the integrity and range of research in the field—and it presents an overview of the development and discipline of economic history over the past century. From the pre-1940 period, when German scholarship strongly influenced economic historians, to the growing internationalization of the field since the 1990s, these contributions from twelve renowned scholars examine the evolution of Dutch economic history as the NEHA celebrates its centennial.
