It has taken a little longer to arrive than planned, but An Economist's Guide to Economic History is now be available as an ebook, priced at just £22. That is 50 chapters, 500 pages, or 4.4 pence per page; a very good deal!
If you have ordered the physical paperback edition, it should arrive in a couple of weeks - hopefully just in time for Christmas/New Year.
If your university's library has access to SpringerLink, why not try-before-you-buy? Following this link:
