LSE Economic History Society Review 2014-5
We are pleased to announce the publication of the LSE Economic History Review 2014-5, a journal created by the LSESU Economic History Society. This student-initiated publication is edited by Shem Ng and Jay Pan, with the support of Professor Max Schulze and Dr Chris Minns.
The editors write, 'Engaging with the past is fundamental to understanding the present whilst good historical writing appreciates the nuances of time and place. The LSE Economic History Review aims to combine both these traits by providing a platform to present outstanding scholarship of Social and Economic History written by current LSE Students.
'The journal is an annual publication run by the committee of the LSESU Economic History Society. The LSE is not responsible for its contents.'
The winning submission by Economic History undergraduate Bethany Bloomer compares the gender neutrality of the business cycle in London and Blackburn during the interwar period. Other essays focus on the failure of the New Deal, sources of agricultural growth in Japan and the legacy of colonialism in West Africa.
