This paper documents industrial output growth around the poor periphery (Latin America, the European periphery, the Middle East and North Africa, Asia, and sub-Saharan Africa) between 1870 and 2007.� We provide answers to the following questions.� When and where did rapid industrial growth begin in the periphery?� When and where did peripheral growth rates exceed those in the industrial core?� When was the high-point of peripheral industrial growth?� When and where did it become widespread?� When was the high-point of peripheral convergence on the core?� How variable was the growth experience between countries?� And how persistent was peripheral industrial growth?
