Histoire économique et historiographie française : crise ou renouveau ?

    Recent events are demonstrating the biggest importance of economics in our history. Even if economic history does not take up the same place than in the UK or in the USA, it has been renewed since the 1970s. From a global economic history, dominated by Marxist approaches, economic historians have turned to more microeconomic questions around new fields (network analysis, state economic history, international economic relations, regional economic development and, more recently, products history, industrial archaeology and colonial history). Two fields are characterized by a stronger dynamism: on the one hand, the history of technical innovations; on the other hand business history. If economic history wants to survive and be reinforced, economic history must be reopened to economic and management sciences and to accept debates concerning both methods and problematics. There is no science without strong controversies.
