First edition. 8vo. vii, [3], 181, [1] pp. Original blue cloth, spine lettered in gilt, dust jacket (light wear to extremities, spine panel rubbed at head and tail of jacket, vertical crease to front panel, notwithstanding a very good copy). Oxford, At the Clarendon Press.

Arguably Hicks' only attempt at "proposing a grand theory of economic history" (New Palgrave), a broad theoretical enquiry into the classification of "economic states of society" and the processes through which "one such state should give way to another".
