Series description

Edited by Maarten Prak, University of Utrecht, and Jan Luiten van Zanden, Utrecht University
The Global Economic History Series aims to publish works contributing to the description, clarification and explanation of long-term changes in world economy, including such issues as the differential economic development of various countries and regions, and the economic and social inequalities that resulted from this imbalanced pattern. The series includes studies which combine a theoretical perspective with detailed historical investigations, and utilise a comparative perspective to unravel the mysteries of global economic development.

General Editors: Maarten Prak and Jan Luiten van Zanden

Authors are cordially invited to submit proposals and/or full manuscripts to either the series editors or the publisher at BRILL, Plantijnstraat 2, 2321 JC Leiden, The Netherlands.

Manuscripts (in English) should be 90,000 to 180,000 words in length and may include black and white illustrations. The editors are interested in receiving proposals for specialist monographs and syntheses, multi-authored contributions such as conference proceedings, as well as thematic issues, source translations and edited texts.

How do series work?

To create a series or add a work to it, go to a "work" page. The "Common Knowledge" section now includes a "Series" field. Enter the name of the series to add the book to it.

Works can belong to more than one series. In some cases, as with Chronicles of Narnia, disagreements about order necessitate the creation of more than one series.

Tip: If the series has an order, add a number or other descriptor in parenthesis after the series title (eg., "Chronicles of Prydain (book 1)"). By default, it sorts by the number, or alphabetically if there is no number. If you want to force a particular order, use the | character to divide the number and the descriptor. So, "(0|prequel)" sorts by 0 under the label "prequel."

What isn't a series?

Series was designed to cover groups of books generally understood as such (see Wikipedia: Book series). Like many concepts in the book world, "series" is a somewhat fluid and contested notion. A good rule of thumb is that series have a conventional name and are intentional creations, on the part of the author or publisher. For now, avoid forcing the issue with mere "lists" of works possessing an arbitrary shared characteristic, such as relating to a particular place. Avoid series that cross authors, unless the authors were or became aware of the series identification (eg., avoid lumping Jane Austen with her continuators).

Also avoid publisher series, unless the publisher has a true monopoly over the "works" in question. So, the Dummies guides are a series of works. But the Loeb Classical Library is a series of editions, not of works.
